Correspondence on Thoughts on the Structural Efficiency of Cable-Stayed and Catenary Suspension Bridges by Professor J.G.A. Croll

Mr H. C. Dalton (M) (Tottenham & Bennett) Although I am not a bridge engineer, I was interested to read Professor Croll’s feature. The following points occurred to me: (1) Professor Croll appears to have made an error in moving from eqn (lb) to eqn (1d). Surely, the term 3/16 (l/h)² in the latter should read 1/8 (l/h)²?
