Professor Ross introduced the paper by saying that it differed from many presented to the Institution in that it described no important engineering work neither was it a record of extensive experimental or theoretical research. It was an attempt, however, to demonstrate by a few very simple tests certain important conceptions of the effects of creep in structures. Some of the ideas were by no means new, but if the paper helped to clarify them and to stimulate interest and perhaps even further research, then it might have some value in furthering our knowledge of the fundamental behaviour of reinforced concrete structures.

Steel in Tension

Steel in Tension

Common opinion on the strength of materials'appears to be satisfied that the conventional basis of the mathematical theory of elasticity is fundamentally sound, but needs a little adjustment to allow for plastic yield. The opinion is expressed that this basis is erroneous and should be discarded for the purposes of research on steel in tension. A.C. Vivian

Open Discussion on Towards a European Code for Concrete - Can Concise Codes be Comprehensible and Co

Open Discussion on Towards a European Code for Concrete - Can Concise Codes be Comprehensible and Co

Professor A. L. L. Baker (F): Mr. President, will attempt to be concise and comprehensible but not comprehensive, and begin by complimenting Dr. Matthews on his introduction and grasp of the task before us of creating a common international concrete Code. The national delegates who first met at Luxembourg in 1953 were unofficial enthusiasts. Colonel Galbraith, who was President at that time, had the foresight to see the significance of the CEB which was then formed and he asked me to attend.
