British Code CP114 does not give sufficient guidance on shear design of reinforced concrete beams. Some of the requirements appear illogical. Conformance with the Code does not guarantee a satisfactory design or an adequate factor of safety against shear failure. Professor R.H. Evans and F.K. Kong
This paper describes the design of two high point office blocks in which the floors are suspended from steelwork cantilever systems supported on the central concrete cores. Particular reference is made to the structural steelwork, of which the major part is fabricated from high yield stress steel to BS 968, and the measures taken to control the quality of the material. G.M.J. Williams and P.A. Rutter
The authors have presented an interesting method for the rapid estimation of maximum bending moments in decks of suspension bridges. Their approximate analysis draws to a logical conclusion the more general method described by Bowen and Charlton (reference 3 of the paper). It is clear that the use of symmetry and antisymmetry offers a considerable computational advantage :two sets of three linear simultaneous equations are solved far more quickly than one set of six.
