Mr. K. M. Brook: It is a pleasure to read a paper in which the authors have presented their results and observations so very clearly. This clarity should not, however, cause us to overlook the considerable amount of painstaking effort involved in their work.
Our thanks to Mr. A. H. Jenkins (F) who has enlightened us about Paxton's source of inspiration (May 75) : : The water lily was at Chatsworth, not Kew. George F. Chadwick in Works of Sir Joseph Paxton gives the reference as Royal Society of Arts, Transactions, Vol. LVII, 1850-51. The idea had been developed before in connection with the Chatsworth Lily House detailing.
A method of designing reinforced concrete sections subjected to membrane stresses has been presented. The method proposes separate design for horizontal, vertical and shear
stresses which are in excess of the concretess carrying capability. The method is simple and is suitable for use in the everyday design work of such structural elements.
