ESTRACTS from Report of American Concrete Institute’s Committee on Treatment of Concrete Surfaces :- When reinforcing steel in exterior members is not back at least one full inch from the outside face of the concrete, moisture works its way in, causing it to rust. Eventually, this rusting if continued will spall off the concrete and cause an unsightly appearance, and may even in severe cases affect the strength of structure. Good design should never call for such sizes of hoops, spirals, stirrups, &C., as will necessitate steel within one inch of the surface, but sometimes due to careless placing the steel will be at or near the surface.

Unsymmetrical Beam Loading. A Short Cut to the Bending Moment Diagram with Notes on Moving Loads.

IN calculating the bending moments in a beam freely supported at the ends it is usual, when the loading is not symmetrical, first to calculate an end reaction. Many people do not realise that the calculations can be put in such a form that the complete bending moment and shear diagrams can be drawn without further calculation. W.A. Green
