The Structural Engineer

The conditions for the design of the substructure of the Barbican Arts Centre, London, are outlined. The building comprises a large deep basement, andis surrounded by existing buildings, including two tall blocks of dwellings. The problems thereby posed are examined. A generalaccount is given of the proposed form of the structural solution. A. Stevens, B.O. Corbett and A.J. Steele

The author's interesting paper shows empirically that curves which give the critical values per of an individual column can also be used to find p cr for n bay structures involving n + 1 identical, equally loaded columns. F.W. Williams

The paper published in January in The Structural Engineer was written about two years ago. Since then I have conducted further tests and discussed my ideas with a number of lecturers and engineers, all of which has confirmed the conclusions drawn in the paper.

Dr. Eastwood (Past President) : A matter of some interest is the behaviour of the inclined piles. Some of the piles are vertical and some inclined and all are attached to a fairly rigid frame at ground level. Thus the tops of the piles will move down bodily in a vertical direction under load, whilst the toes of the piles will move in the direction at which the pile is inclined. The toes of the piles will tend to move apart and the piles will bend. With the amount of settlement which is expected could this bending be sufficient to produce cracking of the piles?

Significant developments in techniques for analysing complex wall systems have occurred over the past 15 years. These developments are reviewed and the relative importance of various parameters is discussed. The behaviour and analysis of both plane and 3-D wallsystems is considered. I.A. MacLeod

The Lord's decision in Ann's case continues to stimulate discussion in this column; whatever other outcome there may be from that decision it has certainly brought about an interesting airing of points of view from members and a worthwhile clarification of the issues concerned for many of us. Mr. I. W. Menzies adds his comments when he writes: The roughly cobbled road in which Mr. Tietz (August 1977) finds himself is, I think, the result of his taking a wrong turning in following the 'Anns' case.
