<h4>Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt</h4>

Discussion on Tension Structures by H.A. Buchholdt

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.'

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.'
