Mr. Victor L. Gill (F): I would like to express my great admiration for the sheer magnitude of the work which Professor Leonhardt and Dr. Schlaich have undertaken and also the meticulous attention to detail and the engineering skill with which it has been accomplished. Briefly, there are one or two small points which I would like to make. First of all, what account has been taken of creep and relaxation in the cables? The emphasis on dimensional accuracy makes me wonder whether this may pose a problem. This is also coupled with the stress limits in the cables, but perhaps you would be good enough to comment on that point.
Mr. Kenneth Severn, MC, MA(Cantab), CEng, FIStructE, FlCE will take office as President of the Institution on 5 October next and will deliver his Presidential Address at an Ordinary Meeting at 6 pm that evening at 11 Upper Belgrave Street, London.
The paper outlines the concept initially adopted in redesigning a method of system building for large panel structures and describes tests carried out to ensure the compliance of the proposed system with the Building (Fifth Amendment) Regulations. Full scale tests to failure were carried out on vertical shear joints, horizontal flank-wall joints and individual wall and floor components. In addition, assemblies of components and joints were subjected to static internal loadings. A design approach based on observed behaviour is outlined and discussed with reference to present design requirements.
