Steel Economy

The design and construction of modern steel and reinforced concrete structures are largely governed by the provisions of the 1948 Editions of B.S.449 and B.S. Code of Practice C.P.114 which replace those of a previous decade. The progress reflected in these documents is reviewed in the light of their contribution to steel economy and a comparison is made of the steel required for a number of alternative structural examples. Brief consideration is given to some aspects which require clarification or further research and to the direction of future advances. L.R. Creasy
