The paper reviews simple methods of analysing the effects of the creep and shrinkage of concrete in structural members. The cases considered include prestressed and reinforced concrete, cracked and uncracked, under moment and direct load. J.M. Illston and L. England

Discussion on System-built Flats on a Deep Buried Quarry by D.H. Orme and S. Thorburn

Mr. J. Peacock: ‘Mr. Thorburn said that the use of the Armco liner in the piles stopped ground water from getting into the bore; but it could still fill up the bottom of the bore, as far as I could see, so really what does the Armco liner do? It seems quite expensive to put there, and I do not see how it stops water from getting into the bottom of the bore.’

The Flexural Strength of Concrete Beams Reinforced with Very High-strength Steel

The Flexural Strength of Concrete Beams Reinforced with Very High-strength Steel

Synopsis The paper describes an investigation into the ultimate behaviour of concrete beams reinforced with bars with proof strengths varying between 414N /966N/mm2 (60 000 and 140 000 lb/in2). A method by which the ultimate bending moment can be calculated to agree reasonably with the experimental results. It is shown that steel with a yield point of up fo 552 N/mm2(80 000 lb/in2) can offer worthwhile economic advantages and that the crack widths associated with the higher working stresses are tolerable for normal exposure.
