The paper presents a theoretical analysis of the failure probability density function and cumulative failure density function for timber columns of known slenderness ratios and known distributions of the material properties. This analysis then allows comparisons to be made of failure probabilities in columns of various slenderness ratios and other properties. D.A. Newton and R. Ayaru

Professor J. Heyman: There is an enormous amount of new material in this paper and it is going to take us a long time to assimilate it. I would like to make one or two broad comments and not discuss the detailed results. One of the most interesting features is the use of realistic flexible joints rather than the rigid joints that were used in the previous tests. If I can summarize the test results, the beam behaviour using the flexible joints accorded pretty well with the predictions of the Joint Committee’s report, the behaviour of the columns was not so close, but the ultimate collapse loads reached by the columns were certainly on the right side-the Joint Committee’s method was conservative. All of these observations, while differing in degree, were in fact results repeated from the previous test with the rigid joints.

Internationally conoidal reinforced concrete shell roofs have been used attractively. They can of course also be made, and sometimes are made, from laminated timber, glass reinforced plastics (glass fibre), aluminium, steel, etc. C.B. Wilby and M.M. Naqvi
