Correspondence. ' An Elastic-plastic Analysis by Computer for Framed Structures Loaded up to Collapse ' by A. Jennings and Dr. K. Majid, published in The Structural Engineer, December 1965

Dr. Le-Wu Lu (Research Associate-Professor of Civil Engineering, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) writes:- 'The authors are to be congratulated for contributing an interesting paper in an area which has attracted considerable attention in recent years. The use of computers in elastic-plastic analysis provides not only the potential of dealing with highly complex structures but also the capability of inclusion of many so-called "secondary effects". The program developed in the paper has attempted to include almost all the major secondary effects, except, as the authors noted, the following two:- (l) the effect of reduction of plastic moment (2) the spread of plastic zones in the members.
