In perusing the very interesting contribution to the study of pre-stressed concrete from Dr. R. H. Evans and Mr. G. WiIson, in the August 1942 issue of The Structural Engineer, a few facts should be kept in mind.
MR. F. E. DRURY remarked that as he was the one who requested that this second meeting to discuss this Paper should be held, it was only logical that he should take part in the discussion.
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.'
