The Chairman, opening the discussion, said that the Institution had received an interesting letter from Sir Edwin McAlpine, parts of which were pertinent to the discussion and which he would read. Sir Edwin had said that he very much regretted that owing to a previous engagement he was prevented from attending the meeting, but took the opportunity of calling attention to a few of the more unusual aspects of the very large scheme. The letter then continued: ‘ First and foremost, I think some of the problems in foundations on this site gave very good opportunities for improving our knowledge of the use of cylinder piles, for example the special treatment of the retaining wall adjacent to the Kings Scholars’ Pond Sewer. Secondly, the decision to use a dewatering system instead of steel sheet piling for the pile cap raft supporting Block A, which resulted in a saving in time and money and also eliminating the troubles of noise nuisance which are engendered by driving steel sheet piling in an area such as this.‘

Stresses in Column Reinforcement. Written discussion on the paper by J. M. Plowman BSc PhD AMl

Stresses in Column Reinforcement. Written discussion on the paper by J. M. Plowman BSc PhD AMl

At the meeting a number of members contributed to a discussion on Dr. Plowman's paper and their comments were recorded by the Institution's shorthand writer, Mr. A. R. Purchase, whose death was announced a day or two later. Despite many efforts it has proved impossible to transcribe Mr. Purchase's notes. The written contributions to the discussion are published below, with Dr. Plowman's replies. The Institution offers its apologies to Dr. Plowman and to those members who spoke at the meeting for the fact that publication of the full discussion is impossible.

Intermediate Hinges in Moment Distribution Method

Intermediate Hinges in Moment Distribution Method

This paper presents an extension of the Cross method of moment distribution to the analysis of continuous frames with members having hinges located between supports. General expressions for the stiffness, carry-over factor and fixed-end moments are derived for members with variable moment of inertia. Numerical examples are given to illustrate the procedure of analysis. S.L. Lee, R.S. Harwell and F.P. Wiesinger

Correction of Virtual Work Relationships for the Effect of Axial Load

Correction of Virtual Work Relationships for the Effect of Axial Load

The virtual work equation by which flexural deformations are related has been corrected to allow for the effect of axial compressive forces. These corrections can be applied wherever the end moments on an axially loaded member are defined and are particularly useful in the determination of the elastic critical loads of structural systems by reiterative numerical methods.
