Correspondence Notes on a Failure: Wood-wool Slabs used as Permanent Shuttering

Correspondence Notes on a Failure: Wood-wool Slabs used as Permanent Shuttering

A reinforced concrete office block of 7 storeys was recently damaged by IRA bomb attack. The bomb was placed on the first floor in an end bay and opposite to a staircase, and did considerable structural damage. The bay of first floor on which the bomb was placed was demolished and a hole was blown in the second floor slab above. This, together with damage to external columns, wall beam and solid end gable were all that might have been expected from the size of the bomb employed. However, and at first sight without explanation, large areas of the 6 in thick 'flat-slab' first floor were also damaged. In spite of the fact that these bays could have suffered only from secondary or reflected blast, deflexions of up to 8 in appeared in the middles of several of the 15 ft square bays.

The Ultimate Load Behaviour of Plate Girders Loaded in Shear

The Ultimate Load Behaviour of Plate Girders Loaded in Shear

The paper presents a plastic method of design for plate girder webs which allows for the influence of flange rigidity upon the post buckled behaviour of webs. The design procedure which is based on a study of the behaviour of 40 plate girders tested by the authors, has been checked against other experimental data available in the technical press. Because the present design procedure allows for the influence of flange stiffness upon the post buckled behaviour of shear webs it is more accurate than existing design methods. K.C. Rockey and M. Skaloud

May 1971 CEI Examinations

May 1971 CEI Examinations

The CEI Board's Moderators and Chief Examiners present the following report in the hope that it will be of help to prospective candidates and particularly to colleges who provide courses of preparation. From the performances of candidates in May 1971 too many are clearly ill-prepared for the examination or are incapable of reaching its standard.
