This new sports stadium providing covered accommodation for 50000 spectators is described in the paper. The plan shape of the roof resulted in variations in both height of the uprights and length of the supporting prestressed concrete cantilever frames which were all of precast hollow box segmental consfruction with glued joints. Methods of minimizing variations in deflexion at the cantilever ends due to Prestressing and long term creep and of adjustment of these during consfruction are described. With the Boulevard PBriphBrique running in funnel beneath part of the stadium the foundation problems as they affected the superstructure are also given.

<h4>The Superstructures of Dungeness 'B' Nuclear Power Station</h4>

The Superstructures of Dungeness 'B' Nuclear Power Station

The paper describes in detail the structural solutions adopted in the design of the superstructures of major steel framed buildings constructed on an extremely exposed site. Particular reference is made to the design of a large three-dimensional structure at high level and to the resistance to wind forces provided by reinforced concrete floor slabs acting in conjunction with vertical braced steel frames and an internal reinforced concrete tower structure. The requirements governing the design of the superstructure frameworks are defined and brief particulars are given of a wind tunnel test associated with the high level three-dimensional structure.
