The paper presents a new approach to the analysis of bridge decks having a cellular transverse cross-section. It uses a modified finite element technique and solutions are
obtained by fully-automatic computer program. Only the major stress-carrying modes are represented and a considerable saving in the number of simultaneous equations to be solved is achieved. The degree of accuracy obtained is assessed by comparisons with empirical values and the programs are used to investigate the effect of distortional stiffness on stresses.

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.
Details of the Institution’s Structural Engineering Technician Certifcate Scheme have now been published and advised to all colleges in the United Kingdom that offer courses of preparation for the specified academic qualifications. All chartered structural engineers and others responsible for the training of design office personnel should familiarise themselves with the scheme in order that they may advise and guide those whose qualifications and responsibilities can lead to the award of the Institution’s Structural Engineering Technician Certificate.
