Discussion The Structural Behaviour of Steel and Concrete Box Girder Bridges by J.C. Chapman, P.J. Dowling, P.T.K. Lim and C.J. Billington

Mr. D. W. Smith : I was delighted to read this paper. It has the unusual property of being based on a sound theoretical background combined with applicability to creative design and practicality of presentation. A paper of this sort coming out of a university has appeal to the practical man, and goes some way in bridging any dangerous gap which tends to build up between the academic and the practitioner; between theory and practice.
