THE solution of the differential equations for the varied cases of laterally loaded struts present arithmetical difficulties particularly as the number of the integration constants contained in a problem increase. The time taken to obtain an acceptable solution can be extremely long if the first answer arrived at does not seem to be of the right order, thereby indicating an error in the evaluation of the constants.
