The lateral buckling of beams is a complicated phenomenon, the maximum elastic bending stress necessary to cause buckling being dependent upon the geometrical and material properties of the beam, the type and position of the loading and also the support conditions. This paper presents a design procedure which enables all of these factors to be allowed for in an accurate, yet simple and direct manner, for 41 different cases of loading and support. The proposed method is both more accurate and more versatile than existing methods used in design codes. D.A. Nethercot and K.C. Rockey

Discussion New Steelworking Facilities at Harland and Wolff’s Shipyard, Belfast

Dr. W. MacGregor: The steelworking facilities have been clearly described, and the authors have said that although they were not responsible for the plant and production lines they were deeply involved in the general planning and in the complex detailing and programming. This is an understatement-I know what work they did, and at no time on this job were we held up for lack of detail drawings. This is a tribute which certainly cannot be paid to every firm of consultants.

Ultimate Load Behaviour of Mangla Dam Baffle Blocks: Analysis and Model Tests

Ultimate Load Behaviour of Mangla Dam Baffle Blocks: Analysis and Model Tests

The paper presents the results of a preliminary ultimate load analysis on the baffle blocks of the Mangla Dam spillway, together with a description of the ensuing model tests. The models were manufactured from several types of reinforced plaster. The results obtained showed that the predicted failure mode did, in fact, occur. B.W. Preece, M. Kwiecinski and O.C. Zienkiewicz

Synopsis Temperature Effects in Precast and Cast In Situ Concrete Shear-wall Structures by Dr.-Ing.

Whilst the effect of lateral loads has been given most attention in the investigation of shear-wall-building structures, few publications deal with the effect of gravity loads. Even less attention was paid to the effect of temperature changes.
