Report on Structural Safety

This report has been compiled by a committee of the Institution after a review of safety problems in relation to a wide range of structures. In its report the committee makes a fresh approach to structural safety problems with a view to helping the development of more rational methods of design. No attempt has been made to put forward recommended numerical values for load factors applicable to the various mediums of construction, this being considered to be a matter for Codes of Practice committees and others working in the respective fields.
