The Structural Engineer

On Sunday 24 March 1974, one of the two cooling towers in the middle of Halifax had its legs cut by blasting but it did not fall, and it now remains sitting on its bottom edge leaning in the correct predetermined direction. J.H.A. Crockett

Existing knowledge on punching shear is reviewed in the context of the recommendations of CP 110. Wherever possible test data are compared with the code equations, which are shown to be reasonable and a great improvement on CP 114. Attention is drawn to areas where further research is needed to confirm design methods. P.E. Regan

Mr. G. J. Zunz (F): The glass wall structure as it was finally built is described in the paper. I want to make a few observations about its earlier development.

There must be few engineers who do not know that the Romans used concrete but almost as few who have a clear idea of its nature or what happened to concrete between Roman times and today. Dr. Norman Davey

The experience gained in the Department of Civil Engineering, Liverpool University in the use of a computing system for interactive structural design is discussed. The design process is examined and reveals the necessity for efficient man-machine communication between designer and machine. Conversational mode of operation and visual display facilities are shown to provide a convenient means of achieving such communication. The engineer retains control of the design process at all stages, and uses the speed and memory of the computer to assist him in the evolution of a satisfactory scheme. Examples of three diverse applications are presented. F. Sawko and R.J. Cope
