MR. A. J. H. CLAYTON, B.Sc. (Eng.), Assoc.M.Inst.C.E., said he was a visitor who had specialised in one aspect of the problem which was being discussed, viz., that of road traffic. The road traffic problem suffered because everybody thought he knew something about it. Road traffic control however, was a branch of road engineering and he feared that even road engineers did not study it as much as they should, yet it was particularly important in towns where large volumes of traffic had to be handled.

Discussion on Are Our Code Provisions for Slabs Safe? by A.W. Beeby

Discussion on Are Our Code Provisions for Slabs Safe? by A.W. Beeby

Dr. D. D. Matthews (Past President): In my view the answer to the question raised in the title of this evening’s paper is a simple affirmative. Dr. Beeby has raised a number of interesting points and treated them in a workmanlike manner. He points out the inconsistencies in the way one-way spans are treated, particularly in comparison with two-way slabs supported along their edges, and, to a lesser extent, flat slabs.

Factors Affecting the Racking Resistance of Timber Framed Panels

Factors Affecting the Racking Resistance of Timber Framed Panels

This paper deals with the various factors that affect the racking resistance of timber framed panels. The principal factors are the sheathing materials, the extent of vertical loading, the length of the panel, openings, holding down and the nail spacing. Other factors are generally of lesser importance. Test results relating to these factors are analysed, and a relationship is derived for each factor. The effects of outer claddings and inner linihgs are discussed very briefly. A simple design method for calculating the allowable racking resistance of panel assemblies is suggested. R.A. Robertson and D.R. Griffiths
