The paper examines the behaviour of multi-storey structures employing the concept of belt truss system for wind bracing. Optimum locations of belt trusses which minimize wind sway are discussed. A simple method of analysis based on flexibility approach is presented and an example problem is worked out using the method. B.S. Taranath

Discussion on Central Hill Lambeth by Peter Buckthorp, Fred Butler, Peter Dunican and John Morrison

The President: Before l propose a vote of thanks to our authors, I would like to make a few remarks about the profession. We, in fact, hear many remarks about our profession when collapses or other troubles occur. This is a paper about an extremely difficult job-one which posed ever-changing problems. The outcome was successful-after all, Ove Arup Et Partners are the leading structural consultants-and yet, what does the Press say? Ove Arup were getting advice; they were using outside experts. I think they ddeserve considerable praise.

Design of Structural Frames to Deflexion Limitations

Design of Structural Frames to Deflexion Limitations

Structural frames are usually designed to satisfy deflexion requirements by trial and error. Recent optimization methods are restricted to small or very specialized structures. In the general method proposed herein an efficient analysis program is used to determine linear approximations to the rates of change of deflexions with the section properties of the frame members. A simple linear programming procedure then determines the most economical changes of section required to satisfy the deflexion constraints. Cycles of analysis and optimization continue until a satisfactory design is obtained. Comparisons with other methods show that this design is likely to be close to the optimum. Haunched frames can be designed and the reduction in frame stiffness due to compressive axial loads can also be allowed for. Examples of the application of the method to plane steel frames are given.

The Collpase Behaviour of Plate Girders Loaded in Shear

The Collpase Behaviour of Plate Girders Loaded in Shear

A new ultimate load method of design is presented which can be used for predicting the failure load of conventional plate girders having webs reinforced by both longitudinal and transverse stiffeners, hybrid girders and unsymmetrical girders. This new design method provides identical lower and upper bound solutions, and, furthermore, it is shown that many of the existing solutions are contained as special cases of the present, more general solution.
