This paper presents a simple method of calculating the failure load on a reinforced or prestressed concrete beam. The method is applicable to both flexure and shear failure
zones irrespective of size and section and is based on tests, results of which are discussed at the end of the paper. The original fests for shear were carried out for Messrs. Pierhead Limited at Feltham and Liverpool on their standard units. The results of fire tests on a number of joists in Holland published in the report no. 13 by CUR are also analysed from the ultimate strength point of view and compared with the predicted failure load.

The Ice Stadium covers an area of l1 920 m2 (128 300 ft2) with a roof resting on four supports 95 m (312 ft) apart in one direction and 65 m (213 ft) in the other. The roof
consists of cylindrical shells intersecting at right angles, each shell being formed of two surfaces each 61 mm (2.4 in) thick and 1.3 m (4.26 ft) apart joined together by
ribs radiating from the supports and diaphragms lying along the generators.
Mr. Peter Dunican: 'I should like to congratulate Dr. Chan for the very able way in which he has presented his paper. The paper interests me completely, but particularly as a designer.'
