Correspondence on Design and Analysis of Concrete Slabs Using a Modified Strip Method by D.W. O'Dwyer and Professor E.J. O'Brien

Dr D. Johnson (M) (Nottingham Trent University) In his latest book" Professor Hillerborg notes that'it should be possible to write computer programs based on the strip method, although such programs do not so far seem to have been developed'. The authors are therefore to be congratulated on being prepared to venture where others have apparently feared to tread. It would, however, appear to the writer that their brave attempt to automate the strip method should be regarded as a first attempt rather than a finished product. This suggestion is based on the results for the three case studies presented in the paper, which will be discussed separately.
