Correspondence (1) on Remedial Works to Cracked Reinforced Concrete Deep Beams by S. Mackey and T.K.

Correspondence (1) on Remedial Works to Cracked Reinforced Concrete Deep Beams by S. Mackey and T.K.

The authors have provided some interesting data on a serviceability failure of deep beams which should prove invaluable to research workers and Code Committees concerned with this difficult problem. It would, however, increase the value ofthe paper if rather fuller details of the reinforcement of the beams could be provided so that shortcomings in the design could be properly assessed.

Open Discussion on Code Workmanship Clauses - Fact or Fiction by S.C.C. Bate

Open Discussion on Code Workmanship Clauses - Fact or Fiction by S.C.C. Bate

Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd (F): I have listened with interest to Dr. Bate, and whilst it is customary at this beginning of term to extend the Christmas spirit of goodwill to our discussions, I regret tonight's discussion hardly allows room for the Christmas euphoria to continue. The theme of Dr. Bate's introduction is, that workmanship clauses in Codes of Practice and the usual site inspections of workmanship under those Codes are unsatisfactory. I noted with a certain grim satisfaction that Dr. Bate has suggested that the drafting of workmanship clauses is open to commercial, political and other pressures.
