Dr. G. Somerville (M): I have a few questions I would like to ask regarding the two methods of analysis which were finally selected, namely, the equivalent grillage and the space frame analysis.
A new float glass plant has been constructed inside the boundaries of the Cowley Hill Works of Pilkington Brothers Limited, St. Helens. The site of the plant was extremely varied due both to the natural topography and geology and to the man-made obstructions of a very large industrial tip and massive foundations for an old process.

Tests are described of a quarter-scale concrete simply supported bridge deck composed of U-section pretensioned beams and in situ top slab. The bridge behaved linearly at design and up to one third overload. No serious deterioration of load distribution occurred after equivalent full HB loading was repeated 2000 times at midspan in both
central and eccentric positions with respect to the longitudinal centre line. Two-dimensional analysis using plate theory was found to be adequate in predicting longitudinal beam moments. The finite strip method was found to be efficient in analysing both transverse and longitudinal stresses. An ultimate load test was carried out and the cracking and collapse load factors were satisfactory.
