The paper is based on the 'stress-strain relationships' of the plate derived by Moxham. The theory developed by him is applicable to simply supported steel plates, with the unloaded edges free of pull in. In a stiffened plate, however, the unloaded edges are not free to pull in; the resulting strength predictions are, therefore, likely to be pessimistic.
M.R. Horne and R. Narayanan
Professor M. R. Horne and Dr. R. Narayanan: the authors are to be commended for attempting to produce a simple method for calculation of the strength of stiffened compression flanges. The claim, however, that the authors' method is in some way peculiarly superior to other procedures that have been proposed is unsubstantiated.

What is a Code?
In a few words Dr. F. Walley raises a large issue which in one way or another has exercised the minds of many engineers. He writes: Several people are questioning the nature and scope of Codes. However, there is one fundamental proposition which perhaps should be examined first.
