The first speaker, speaking on behalf of Mr. C. Blumfield (Member), said that Mr. Blumfield was unwell and had asked for his appreciation of the very excellent paper to
be conveyed to Mr. Creasy. Mr. Blumfield had had much experience with composite construction and had some difficulty in reconciling the comparative costs of cladding
as quoted by Mr. Creasy. Would it be possible for Mr. Creasy to give the unit costs of the concrete, shuttering, etc.?
This paper describes a method, based on the moment distribution method, for the calculation of bending moments due to sidesway in certain multi-storey frames. The method is based on the conventional methods in which the frame is assumed to behave in a completely elastic manner. The method could possibly be adapted for use with the slope-deflexion method, but this approach has not been considered herein.
An approximate general solution to the problem of contact pressure and displacement under a finite beam resting on soil has already been presentedl. The present article extends the method to axisymmetrically loaded circular slabs.
