This paper sets out in qualitative terms guidance for engineers in achieving the economic use of structural steelwork. It identifies the major cost items in the total construction process and emphasises the importance of their relative values. Then the cost items of the steelwork itself are given and discussed in detail and the paper indicates how money can be saved or wasted depending on the approach adopted by the designer. It indicates how a knowledge of the various steps involved in the steelwork contractor's function can be of great value in deriving the most economic structural solution. F.H. Needham

Last month this column passed on some interesting data and comment from Mr. F. D. Beresford ; he suggested that the assumed increase in strength of concrete over the years might be somewhat dubious and recommended the adoption of the 28 day value for design. Mr. Gordon Rose who initiated the discussion (February 77) returns to the subject, if not in the same vein, certainly with the same object. He writes: I would indeed prefer to respond to Mr. Murphy on the subject of longterm ageing rather than pursue the matter of cube/core; except to say that one could write a book mentioning all those who claim that 8 m is there to cover their particular deficiencies. (Come to think of it, I have written a book on it!). Verulam
