Concepts of Structures, by William Zuk
(New York: Reinhold Publishing Corp.,
1963) 9 x 6 in., 79 pp., 48s.
Dr. D. D. Matthews (Vice-president) had a series of technical questions to put to the author.
What did he consider to be the maximum practicable weight to handle on a building site? Fig 3 of the paper showed some hammer head cranes of a type that Dr. Matthews had seen only in Eastern Europe. He was interested to have any data that could be given about the loads these could carry, as well as the speed of lifting.
The paper describes the design and construction of five footbridges similar in design and appearance that have been erected on the Kwinana Freeway near Perth, Western Australia.
