General equations for determination of redundants at midspan of a uniformly loaded helicoidal girder fixed at its ends ore given. Tabulated reslults for these redundants obtained with the aid of a digital computer, are presented for 510 different cases, the variables being horizontal angle, angle of slope, and cross-sectional dimensions. The effect of these variables on the redundants and the maximum internal moments and torques is discussed.
