The paper describes a general analysis of stress in short, reinforced concrete members having any shape in cross section and subject to any combination of bending moments and axial load. Soil pressures under spread footings may also be determined. All materials are assumed to behave elastically when in compression but only the steel reinforcement can carry tension. Stability, torsion and shear are not considered. The analysis is iterative and can be carried to any required accuracy. The means of programming the analysis for a computer are described and the use of an existing program is illustrated.
Mr. F. C. Mellor: ' The paper emphasizes the importance of the team-work between consultant and contractor. We at St. Albans Concrete were very grateful for the opportunities that we were given for very frank discussion at all stages, which enables a well-balanced design to be prepared and which took very full account of the
manufacturing aspects. '
The self-weight of a cantilever tower that is deflected from its stable vertical position, will, in contributing to the loading on the structure, magnify the deflections and bending moments throughout the structure.
