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.

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.

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.'
