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

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. Teychenné

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? '
