The reservations that Professor Heyman expresses regarding the relationship of loads assumed in simple plastic design to real states of loading have some justification, particularly in view of the dubious nature of stochastic calculations in relation to extreme loading conditions. I find it, however, more difficult to follow his arguments in relation to deflexions and stability calculations. Professor M.R. Horne

Discussion of Analysis and Design of Framed Tube Structures for Tall Concrete Buildings by Fazlur R.

Discussion of Analysis and Design of Framed Tube Structures for Tall Concrete Buildings by Fazlur R.

Mr. K. Kretsis (F) : I would like to ask a question with regard to tube combination by internal sub-division. The horizontal beam members of the external tube sides have a considerable stiffness, how is a comparable stiffness achieved in the horizontal beam members of the internal sub-divisions of the tubes so that they may have a substantial effect on the shear lag within the external cross-planes of the tubes?

The Deflexion of Reinforced Concrete Beams Under Fluctuating Load with a Sustained Component

The Deflexion of Reinforced Concrete Beams Under Fluctuating Load with a Sustained Component

An experimental investigation on reinforced concrete beams undertaken to determine the influence of fluctuation of loading on deflexions is described. The beams were subjected to a range of loading regimes usually with a fluctuating component. A linear logarithmic relationship was found between the increase in maximum deflexion and the number of fluctuations or the length of time under load. Increases in deflexion of beams under fluctuating loads were about the same as for beams subjected to sustained load equal in magnitude to the maximum of the fluctuation. The results are related to present design criteria and methods of analysis for deflexions of reinforced concrete structures and the implications for design are discussed. P.R. Sparks and J.B.

Fort Regent Leisure Centre

Fort Regent Leisure Centre

The history of the Fort Regent from its origins to the present day are first described followed by the requirements of the States of Jersey and the evolution of the design now under construction. The engineering problems encountered and the derivation of design loadings together with the solutions to these problems and the design logic employed are discussed. The various structural elements that form the complete roof structure, such as the curved roof beams, fascia girders, portal frames, and the north and south ends and the dome, are fully described together with the design procedure for the structural elements and the methods of shop and site fabrication.
