The Design of Two Buildings with Suspended Structures in High Yield Steel. Discussion on the paper by G. M. J. Williams MA CEng MICE FASCE and P. A. Rutter CEng AMlStructE AMICE

The Chairman: ' We are indebted to Mr. Williams and Mr. Rutter for their practical and informative paper. The authors have taken account of forces which only ten or 20 years ago would have been discussed only in a university laboratory. They have had concern with deflection which until quite recently was quite unthinkable. I think this is a sign of things to come, both in concrete and in steel. We are going to have to know things very much more, we are going to have to know very much more about the behaviour under working conditions as soon as we go over to what is known as the limit state method of design.
