M R. C. W. HAMANN, A.M.I.Struct.E., in his introductory remarks, said he hoped it would not be thought of the authors, as Anthony had thought of Cesar, that they were rather ambitious. However, in view of the fact that their paper was the first contribution on reinforced brickwork to be made to the Institution, they had decided to attempt a broad survey of the subject rather than to treat of any particular technical aspect. Certainly a lengthy paper might have been written on any one of the many scientific aspects, such, for instance as that of the influence of mortar composition and brick porosity on shear strength. Although such a study might have been of particular value to the scientific investigator, he was doubtful that it would have been of general interest and value to the practising engineer. Therefore, they had approached the subject in a general way.

The Strength of Some Reinforced Brick Masonry Beams in Bending and in Shear

A FEW tests have been made at the Building Research Station on short span reinforced brick masonry beams, such as might be used for lintels, and the results are thought to be of sufficient interest to justify publication, even though the investigation by itself is not comprehensive enough to warrant any definite pronouncement as to the reliability of this form of construction under all practical conditions.

Discussion on Prestressing Steels by K.W. Longbottom and G.P. Mallett

Discussion on Prestressing Steels by K.W. Longbottom and G.P. Mallett

Mr. B. Rhodes: Mr. Longbottom has done less than justice to large diameter strand, by which I mean 28 mm (1 1/8 in) diameter strand. I know it is not used a lot, but this is really because of lack of effort on the part of the manufacturers and the system suppliers. 28 mm diameter strand has certain basic drawbacks, namely: 1. The shape of the load/extension curve 2. Relaxation losses at 6 per cent 3. Lower grip efficiencies 4. The tendency to fly open when cut 5. The 'banana' effect at the ends
