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.

<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
