Correspondence. 'A Simplified Approach to the Analysis of Piling Systems' by Professor F. Sawko, MSc

Correspondence. 'A Simplified Approach to the Analysis of Piling Systems' by Professor F. Sawko, MSc

Mr. William G. Baird writes : ' Professor Sawko has presented a paper which will be of interest to all engineers who seek a quick and simple solution to the complex problem of analysing the loads and moments carried by a group of piles. However, some doubt exists as to the reliability of the method when it is applied to physical problems. '

Birkenhead - Mersey Tunnel Approach Viaducts

Birkenhead - Mersey Tunnel Approach Viaducts

In Part 1, the author discusses the background to the design of the integrated viaduct system in relation to the road network in Birkenhead and its relieving effect on local traffic. The choice of spans and structural material is considered and the basis of the structural design of the composite construction column/superstructure junction discussed. Gencral comment is made on the fabrication and erection of the structural steelwork.

Bending Analysis of Hyperbolic Paraboloid Shell

Bending Analysis of Hyperbolic Paraboloid Shell

This paper presents a method for the analysis of rectangular hyperbolic paraboloid shells with any combination of fixed and simply supported edges. The method consists of expressing the displacement functions as double series in characteristic functions satisfying the boundary conditions exactly. The differential equations are satisfied using the orthogonality property of these functions. This results in three infinite sets of simultaneous equations, the solution of which gives the undetermined parameters. The convergence of the deflection, membrane forces and moments have been studied and they are compared with other published results. K.T. Sundara Raja Iyengar and R.S. Srinivasan
