This book introduces the theory of the finite strip method, and discusses its application in structural engineering with special reference to slab and box girder bridges. Separate chapters deal with :(1) finite strip method; (2) bending of plates and plate-beam systems with application to slab-beam bridges; (3) plane stress analysis; (4) analysis of folded plate structures with special reference to box girder bridges; (5) vibration and stability of plates and shells; (6) further developments in finite strip analysis; (7) finite layer method and finite prism method; and (8) computation methods and computer program. Author and subject indexes are appended. /TRRL/
