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.

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>Specification of Concrete with Special Reference to the Proposed Unified Code</h4>

Specification of Concrete with Special Reference to the Proposed Unified Code

At present, the requirements for structural concrete are specified in five different Codes of Practice. These Codes have been drafted at different times and it is not surprising that they differ considerably in those sections related to the specification and production of the concrete. This paper describes the development of the requirements for concrete in the Codes from 1934 to 1965. D.C. Teychenne
