The design of submerged tunnels is a very wide subject and this paper, therefore, gives only an outline of the problems encountered. Aage Brink

Developments in Ship Structures

The loading and structural behaviour of ships are described in general terms and an account is given of some of the contributions to structural knowledge which have emanated from shipbuilding sources. Design policy is discussed and it is noted that the design rules of the classification societies, which are based primarily on experience rather than on explicit factors against limiting conditions, lead to structures which are economical and safe. The classification societies (the largest of which is Lloyds Register) retain responsibility for the ship’s structure throughout its life; the experience on which the rules are based is therefore extensive and well co-ordinated.

Some Aspects of the Economics of Continuous Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders

Some Aspects of the Economics of Continuous Prestressed Concrete Bridge Girders

The initial choice of layout parameters determines to a large extent the overall cost of bridge structures. This initial choice, however, is itself dependent upon the relative unit costs of the materials employed. E.M. Aziz and A.D. Edwards

The Numerical Solution of Second-Order Problems in Structural Analysis

The Numerical Solution of Second-Order Problems in Structural Analysis

The paper presents a numerical technique based on improved finite differencc formulae of the Hermitian type, for the analysis of structures taking into account the second-order effects of the displacements of the structure. The same method can be extended to evaluate the critical loads of structures. The method, which is quite general, does not make use of previously tabulated data and can also include non-linear effects in the analysis. It can be applied to the second-order analysis of most plane structures including continuous beam-columns, multi-storeyed rigid frames and arches. The author has illustrated the approach with several applications. B.N. Thadani
