(1) Theoretical Considerations
In reinforced concrete columns under load both concrete and steel are subjected to the same strain. The question how far the steel can be utilised in compression depends on the relation of the stress-strain diagrams of the two materials.
Dr. K. Hajnal-Konyi
It has long been recognised that there is a large body of knowledge and experience in building practice which, because of the traditional development and widespread nature of the industry, has not been collected and collated so as to be readily available to all those concerned with building. Following suggestions put forward by the architectural Science Board of the Royal Institute of British Architects, discussions
were arranged between representatives of the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Incorporated Association of Architects and Surveyors, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Building Research Station, with the object of exploring the possibility of formulating a scheme which would help to fill this deficiency. As a result of these discussions, a scheme has been drawn up by which a selected number of professional persons in the industry will be appointed as Honorary Observers to the Building Research Station. By arrangement with the professional Institutions, the Observers will be appointed by the Station to act in an individual capacity and not as representatives of their Institutions.
