A method is presented for the analysis of rigid space frames using iterative techniques. In no case are matrices larger than 3 x 3 used, so that the procedure may be carried out by manual methods or may, if desired, be programmed for computation using an electronic computer. The method is illustrated by two examples, one without sway and one involving sway of the frame. B. Rawlings

Shutter Ties in Unlined Concrete Water-retaining Structures. Discussion on the paper by P. Jackson

Mr. C. B. Stone (Vice-president) said it was a common failing of consultants not to admit that their Structures leaked; however, he himself did not know of any case of leakage due to shutter ties. Mr. Jackson had shown there was a weakness but Mr. Stone thought that, if there had been a low water/cement ratio and thorough compaction by vibration, the cavity would not have formed.

A Method of Deriving Influence Lines for a Symmetrical Arrangement of Spans of Uniform Section

It is often found in the design of bridges, and sometimes in the design of floor slabs and beams for buildings, that the spans are of uniform section and symmetrically placed. C. Lawrence
