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

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.

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.
