Mr. L. G. Deuce: ‘In connection with the composite deck no mention is made of the torsional stress in the slab. In my experience it is often quite onerous in the case of a heavily skewed deck. The load factor could, I suggest be near unity. I wonder if there was any sign of torsional failure in the deck slabs.'

Mr. Dorman: ‘Judging by the number of enquiries relating to the merits of various roofing systems received by the BCSA central office, Dr. Buchholdt is to be congratulated on producing a timely paper. It will be of considerable value to have this present study, with its summary of the state of the art in the design of tension structures, and one would certainly hope that this paper will go some way towards bridging the “credibility gap” between research and development activity on the one hand, and design practice on the other.'

The concept and evolution of a practicable solution newly encountered problem is the real challenge of engineering. The new Television Studios for ATV in Birmingham presented such a challenge in design and construction in the minimum of time of a building of unusual structural form which on completion had to be lowered to rest on a series of resilient mountings. The way which the design evolved and the construction was carried out forms the basis of this paper. B. Montgomery-Smith
