Dr. Le-Wu Lu (Research Associate-Professor of Civil Engineering, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) writes:-
'The authors are to be congratulated for contributing an interesting paper in an area which has attracted considerable attention in recent years. The use of computers in elastic-plastic analysis provides not only the potential of dealing with highly complex structures but also the capability of inclusion of many so-called "secondary effects". The program developed in the paper has attempted to include almost all the major secondary effects, except, as the authors noted, the following two:-
(l) the effect of reduction of plastic moment
(2) the spread of plastic zones in the members.
Mr. Peter Dunican, introducing his paper, said that the title ‘ The art of structural engineering ’ had been chosen quite deliberately because, although it was a matter
which he might not be able to pronounce upon too clearly, it was a subject which as a practising structural engineer he ought to know something about.
This paper describes tests that have been carried out to determine the long-term deformation characteristics of Lytag lightweightaggregate concrete, in axial compression and deflection; comparisons are made with gravel concretes made from London-area aggregates.
