Abstract : A survey of the literature dealing with the analysis and design of grillages under normal and axial loads was made. The survey showed that neither a completely satisfactory method for the working stress analysis nor a method for the ultimate strength analysis of grillages under combined normal and axial loads is yet available. It has been suggested that one of the discrete element methods, based on either the lumped parameter or finite element approach, be adapted for both the working stress and ultimate strength analysis of grillages under combined loads.
