The theoretical basis of a suite of computer programs for the analysis of bridge slabs is presented. The slabs were treated as thin elastic plates and solutions were obtained by dynamic relaxation. Orthotropic, variable thickness and constant thickness slabs were considered, of rectangular, skew and curved shapes. Comparisons with other theoretical and experimental results are given. A.C. Cassell, R.E. Hobbs, M.S. Bridgett and P.A.K. Awotwi

Correspondence Variable Repeated Loading and the Plastic Design of Structures by J.M. Davies

The opinion that the probability of a plastically designed structure failing by incremental collapse or alternating plasticity is small compared with that of static collapse is not sound in all cases.

A Strip Method of Slab Design with Concentrated Loads or Supports

A generalization of the simple strip method of slab design is presented which extends the strip method to deal more successfully with concentrated loading or supports. Essentially, the designer chooses a distribution pattern for the vertical shear forces rather than the applied loading. The method is quite general and is applicable to any shape of slab and any type of support or loading. K.O. Kemp
