In the investigation of the behaviour of arches the forms most often considered are the parabola and the circle, whilst from a practical aspect the parabola is the most usual form. The elementary theory of the parabolic arch is not difficult but in more advanced analysis it may be convenient to consider the arch as a sine curve. The brief analysis outlined below compares the behaviour of a suitably chosen sine curve with that of a given parabolic arch with regard to some of the more familiar properties of the latter. H. Waters

Prestressed concrete warehouse for Thos. Heiton and Co. Ltd., Dublin

Prestressed concrete warehouse for Thos. Heiton and Co. Ltd., Dublin

The premises of Messrs. Thos. Heiton and Co. Ltd. are situated in Poolbeg Street, Dublin, where they have carried on for many years the business of wholesale ironmongers and hardware merchants. In recent years it had become apparent that the huddle of old buildings on the site was not only wasteful in storage space but was also the cause of uneconomic working. It was therefore decided to reconstruct the warehouse on modern lines and the services of S. James Hurd, ARIBA, were obtained as architect for the new development. J. R. LOWE and B. Le C. BYRNE

The design and construction of the Chichester Festival Theatre Discussion o n t h e paper by Charles

The design and construction of the Chichester Festival Theatre Discussion o n t h e paper by Charles

Introducing his paper Mr. Weiss said that there was certainly one theme at least which might provoke an interesting discussion: in this almost completely unadorned theatre architecture and engineering had been compelled to find a common expression, architect and engineer had had to be tuned in to the same wavelength. How had this been achieved, and was the final product successful? He hoped that his friend, Mr. Philip Powell, who was present, would give his views on this as he was so much better able to do this than Mr. Weiss.
