A theoretical investigation of box bridge beams is conducted using three methods of analysis, namely, finite element, finite strip and closed cylindrical shell theory. The latter theory allows a rather rapid form of analysis for both plate and cylindrical members for box beams using a computer program.

A description of the general behaviour of a beam-column connection with dowel reinforcement is given, summarizing the observations on 80 laboratory tests, and the effect of the main variables is explained. The test results are considered in conjunction with previous work on the strength of dowels and on shear transfer in composite members to develop a formula for the design of this type of connection.

No correspondence is as yet forthcoming from consulting engineers retained by authorities to appraise structures or from engineers who design for commercial firms on their experience of design checking under the requirements of Building Regulations, its value and quality and the general matter of responsibility, but we remain hopeful that comment will come from these quarters soon. It would add considerably to the exchanges of views already published.
