This paper gives the history of the utilization of ground stabilization techniques for the economic low-rise housing development of the City of Glasgow. It also discusses a semi-empirical approach to the design of ground stabilization works and presents long-term settlement records for three- to fivc-storey blocks of flats founded on stabilized ground.

The Chairman: ' I suppose it is not unusual for engineers to test their designs and theories with models and in fact sometimes with full-scale specimens, but I imagine it is unique that full-scale structures of this kind can be tested through one of our Institution Joint Reports in this way, and we should be grateful to the two principal
bodies concerned, BISRA and BRS, for these facilities. '
Dr. S. C. Bate: ' Mr. Teychennd has referred in the text and in Table 1 to the margin between the mean strength of concrete and the level of strength used for design, and to the way in which this has varied through recent Codes. I would like to take the comparison further and consider these changes with respect to safety against collapse due to failure of concrete. '
