Professor A. L. L. Baker (F): Mr. President, will attempt to be concise and comprehensible but not comprehensive, and begin by complimenting Dr. Matthews on his introduction and grasp of the task before us of creating a common international concrete Code.

The theory of the finite difference method of stability analysis for simple end-loaded variable section members is explained. The theory is developed to give an easy-to-use method for the buckling analysis of steel compression members with any variation of flexural stiffness, pattern of axialloading and support conditions. Data requirements for an analysis are listed and the application of the method to three different structural steelwork problems is described.
