Mr. Brian Scruby (Chairman): ‘ A point that occurred to me when reading your paper was that when I went to America a few years ago I saw some buildings which I thought were rather typical of the industrial side of American building and which seemed to be designed for a specific period of time. I wonder if you would say something about durability and its particular reference to the time factor? '

Correspondence. 'Computer Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Members and Foundations' by D.G. Alcock pu

Mr. K. F. Simm (of Freeman Fox & Partners) writes: ' The computer program described by the author greatly simplifies the analysis of reinforced concrete columns subject to bi-axial bending. It has been used in my office for some time and the data preparation is very much easier than the laborious hand calculation involved in Saville's method. '

<h4>Special Shaped Piers for Viaducts</h4>

Special Shaped Piers for Viaducts

As most of the piers of viaducts act as cantilevers for horizontal loads at top, requiring greater rigidity at base along longitudinal direction, a new type of structural element is suggested which is expected to serve as pier with reasonable efficiency. Rigidity at bottom is not much needed if piers act as a whole, being framed by top capping beam. S.K. Kundoo and B.B. Maiti
