A simple investigation of the behaviour of concrete columns when load is applied through a vertically embedded steel plate is reported and a means of predicting ultimate strength suitable for drawing office use is put forward.

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.

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.
