Correspondence. ' The Collapse of Rigidly-Jointed Singly Redundant Light Alloy Trusses ' by B. G. Neal and D. M. Griffiths, published in The Structural Engineer, December 1963

Mr. I. M. Nitkin of the Engineering Laboratory, Cambridge, writes:- 'Professor Neal and Dr. Griffiths have demonstrated quantitatively that the capacity of a redundant truss is not necessarily exhausted upon first buckling. This is a fact not generally understood. It is interesting to note that, for the particular truss considered by the authors, the shape of the load-deformation curve for the strut BD makes very little difference to the ultimate load.'
