Elastic Full Composite Action in a Slab and Beam System

Elastic Full Composite Action in a Slab and Beam System

The effect of transverse loading on a single panel square slab supported on fully composite flexible beams is considered. An elastic, small deformation analysis is made using finite difference techniques. The significant features of the results are examined and a comparison made with experimental tests on small perspex models. Some simple design rules are suggested which approximate closely to the theoretical results. M.A. Khan and K.O. Kemp

Economic Consequences of Substantial Claims

Economic Consequences of Substantial Claims

At the open meeting of the Institution held on 8 January 1970 (see p. 3 of The Structural Engineer, January 1970, Mr. A. J. Leggatt, presenting the above graph, said: ‘I have concocted a graph (Fig Dl) which is, at the least, controversial; and if it is so controversial that people laugh at it then I will escape under your clause of light-heartedness. I have plotted “claim” as a percentage of the contract sum. Profit is also expressed as a percentage and I qualify that as “tender profit”-that is the profit that the contractor hopes and aims to make at the time of tender. I think the contractors will giggle at the maximum of 25 per cent, but you can put your own values for this graph and the principles remain the same. I have also introduced a new parameter “Ti” which gives it a scientific appearance. “Ti” is the “tightness” of the contract.‘
