The Testing of Reinforced Brickwork and Concrete Slabs Forming Box Beams. Discussion on the paper by J. M. Plowman BSc PhD CEng AMlStructE AMICE AMICEI, R. J. M. Sutherland BA CEng MICE MConsE and M. L. Couzens CEng AMICE

Mr. L.G. Simms (Building Research Station) : ' This paper is very welcome because I do not think we have had one at the Institution on reinforced brickwork for some 25 years. The first thing I do when I read a paper on brickwork is to look at the materials used to see if they are reasonably compatible. My own experience is that it is not always possible to get the materials one would like for a test project and I would say that this is the reason why we see a 17,000 lb/in.2 brick coupled with a 500 lb/in.2 mortar for the A-l box specimens.
