I wonder if you would say something about durability and its particular reference to the time factor? '
A method is presented in which the differences in stay tensions necessary to maintain equilibrium in a mast subjected to wind loading are related to the actual tensions developed in the stays as a result of changes in length of the stay chords caused by a
displacement of the mast from an initial position.
As progress towards the change to metric gathers speed and new metric versions of the various structural Codes of Practice are published, there is a great deal of discussion about the metric units adopted to express force, stress and loading.
