The computer programme described uses as a basis a general computer programme for the non-linear behaviour of structural frameworks when the effect of the deflexions cannot be ignored. The modifications are for ‘lack of fit’ of cable and hanger elements in the dead load condition and for the ‘gravity’ component of the cable stiffness. An example of the application of the programme to the deck erection calculations for the Severn suspension bridge is given. D.M. Brotton

Correspondence. ‘ A Twenty-storey Office Block Founded on Soft Sand in Nigeria ’ by A. S

Mr. D. R. Narahari and Mr. V. S. Aggarwal (Central Building Research Institute, Roorkee, UP, India) writes:- ‘The authors’ Figs 11 and 12 show dissimilar features for the static and dynamic cone tests on the compacted soils. After about 13 ft the static cone results are at variance with the results of dynamic cone tests. The static cone value starts decreasing after about 13 to 15 ft. At 20 ft the value is nearly the same as in the uncompacted state.'

A Useful Method of Moment Distribution

A Useful Method of Moment Distribution

A method of moment distribution is described which is performed on a line-diagram of the structure, the geometry of the structure being conventionalized to facilitate tabulation. The same method of setting-out is useful also for general tabulation purposes. W.E. Bowman
