Excessive cracking due to early thermal and shrinkage movement was a common defect in water retaining structures designed to CP2007: 1970 which shouldbe rectified by the new Code. The paper therefore discusses design in accordance with BS 5337: 1976 for satisfactory control of this form of cracking, and outlines the various design options which are available. B.P. Hughes

Structural Design to BS5337 (1976)

BS 5337 contains clauses which permit the use of limit state design methods for water-retaining structures. There are advantages in using the new method of design and the paper discusses the application of the relevant clauses, and compares typical designs. R.D. Anchor

Block and brickwork are current subjects of correspondence from members. Mr. R. J. Rhodes raises what must be a fairly common problem : As it can prove extremely difficult, if not impossible, to prove on paper that brickwork structures, however simple, will stand up, it is essential that any assistance from internal pressure must be utilised.
