History and its lessons Despite the interesting history of building control going back at least 800 years, I doubt whether it has much relevance in projecting the future.

The shear lag phenomenon in steel box girder bridges is studied by means of the finite element method of analysis.

Suggestions are then made on how the rules could be simplified for inclusion in a Code of Practice. K.R. Moffatt and P.J. Dowling
