M R . L. SCOTT WHITE, M.Inst.C.E., M.I.Struct.E., in proposing a vote of thanks, said that Mr. Sparkes had delivered a very technical lecture in a most interesting way. Road construction had made very rapid progress during the last thirty or forty years., in which the use of concrete had largely figured. Mr. Sparkes still found, after making many experiments in conjunction with his colleagues, that no final recommendations could be made on the subject, and it appeared that final conclusions were still a long way off. Meanwhile he had given much useful information which helped considerably in the study of the subject.

Repeated Stresses on Structures

Repeated Stresses on Structures

PART I. REPEATED STRESSES ON STEEL STRUCTURES. The design of structures of steel and reinforced concrete can roughly be divided into three classes: (1) in which the dead loads and thus the stresses in the structures are large as compared with any moving loads that may come on to the structures; (2) structures in which the stresses due to moving loads may be large as compared with those due to the dead loads; and (3) structures in which the dead and live load stresses may be of the same order of magnitude.

Design and Construction of Explosives Factories

Design and Construction of Explosives Factories

SCOPE OF THE PAPER. This paper deals with the design, construction and erection of several factories at home and abroad, and with the mohfied design of others contemplated to meet the danger of aircraft attack. To avoid a voluminous compilation the descriptive text is divided into :- Section 1. A commercial explosives factory. Section 2. A military explosives factory. Section 3. A propellants factory. Section 4. Propellants factories designed to limit or prevent undue disruption when subjected to aerial attack. C. L. Boucher and D. Bagley

Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt

Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt

Mr. Dorman: ‘Judging by the number of enquiries relating to the merits of various roofing systems received by the BCSA central office, Dr. Buchholdt is to be congratulated on producing a timely paper. It will be of considerable value to have this present study, with its summary of the state of the art in the design of tension structures, and one would certainly hope that this paper will go some way towards bridging the “credibility gap” between research and development activity on the one hand, and design practice on the other.'
