The energy required to make, transport and erect the most common structural materials is tabulated, together with the energy to make unit areas of several building elements. An energy audit is carried out for 12 different layouts of basic structure including reinforced concrete, structural steel and loadbearing brickwork. Similar calculations for ll elevations of cladding suitable for use with the selected structures are also given. Where appropriate, the results for different elevations and structures are combined to give figures for total structure. To avoid the possibility of misleading conclusions. similar results are presented for the running energy required for the elevations considered. Conclusions are drawn concerning the lowest amount of energy required to build internal structures, elevations, and total structures. B.A. Haseltine

Discussion on Halifax Building Society New Head Office by W.E.W. Brook and H. Halsall

Mr. P. B. Ronan: I would like to ask the authors if in retrospect they felt that the site investigation, in particular for a building of this magnitude, was adequate with particular reference to the two boreholes which were put down to give information about groundwater?

Design Rules for the Control of Deflections in Composite Beams

Design Rules for the Control of Deflections in Composite Beams

When limit-state methods are used, the design of many steel-concrete composite beams for buildings is governed by deflection. Limiting span-depth ratios provide a simple but approximate method of controlling deflection. The present paper explains how such ratios have been developed for the next issue of BS449, and gives in an appendix the proposed values and notes on their use. R.P. Johnson and D.G.E. Smith

Correspondence on Analysis and Design of Stiffened Plates for Collapse Load by N.W. Murray

Professor Murray has developed methods for the analysis of stiffened plates which agree very closely with the test results. Unfortunately the design rules are not too direct... David Allen
