This paper describes the stiffness method of solution of prismatic and tapering beams of various common sections with allowance for shear deformation, and compares the results with those obtained from other analyses. A method of treating heavily stiffened joints and conditions of support other than those applied on the neutral axis is then given, and this is extended to the solution of deep frames exhibiting such conditions. Several examples of stiffened structures (including a concrete bridge pier) are then solved and the results compared with other solutions. /TRRL/
