By any standards bomb damage is a messy business. Even when considered by the structural engineer back in his office and away from the debris and the broken glass, it is untidy and presents problems that are far different from those entailed in the design of new works.

Discussion on Prestressing Steels by K.W. Longbottom and G.P. Mallett

Mr. B. Rhodes: Mr. Longbottom has done less than justice to large diameter strand, by which I mean 28 mm (1 1/8 in) diameter strand. I know it is not used a lot, but this is really because of lack of effort on the part of the manufacturers and the system suppliers. 28 mm diameter strand has certain basic drawbacks, namely: 1. The shape of the load/extension curve 2. Relaxation losses at 6 per cent 3. Lower grip efficiencies 4. The tendency to fly open when cut 5. The 'banana' effect at the ends

The Appointment of Certifying Authorities for Offshore Gravity Structures

As reported in Institution Notes on page 322, the Council recently asked the Secretary of State for Energy to take action to solve a number of difficulties experienced by British engineers working on the design of North Sea installations. The disquiet felt by the Institution was set out in detail in an appendix to a letter to the Minister, the text of which is given below.
