The paper presents a numerical technique for solving two-point boundary beam problems. The method of analysis consists of utilizing the method of superposition in conjunction with accurate expressions for boundary-value derivatives and a double integration formula. The method particularly lends itself to the analysis of statically
indeterminate beams, with non-uniform bending stiffness under transverse loading.
Improved compaction, improved adhesion of cement matrix to aggregate particles and application of triaxial stress are seen as the main methods of improving concrete compressive strength.
The rebuilding of the Stock Exchange in London presents an interesting problem in design and in construction. The need was to produce a building of the highest possible
standard architecturally which would not only satisfy the complex requirements of the Stock Exchange as a market but which would also be compatible with the contemporary City scene. At the same time the work had to be carried out without disrupting the operation of the Stock Exchange, and without risking damage to the Central Line tubes which run close alongside the site. This paper describes the first stage of the rebuilding and in particular the special construction of the foundations and also the loadbearing precast concrete exterior of the 27-storey-high tower which determines its architectural character.
