Several examples of concrete bridges which have prominent features, built in Japan during the last decade, are cited and may be considered to have served as guide posts and inspiration for the builders of the many bridges erected since. The outlines of these bridges and the experiments and studies undertaken with regard to their structural designs and construction practices are described, while the contributions made and problems remaining for future clarification are discussed.

A State-of-the-art Review of Computer Programs for the Detailed Design of Reinforced Concrete

A State-of-the-art Review of Computer Programs for the Detailed Design of Reinforced Concrete

This paper aims to present a state-of-the-art review of the use of computers in RC detailing and scheduling. It concentrates on the various aspects of the use of computer programs and of their incorporation in the design process rather than on the merits of their engineering content. It finds that the reason for the number of such programs being small may be the difficulty and cost of initial adaptations to their use. Simon Bensasson

Discussion on the Economics of Steelwork Design by F.H. Needham

Discussion on the Economics of Steelwork Design by F.H. Needham

The President: Do you discern any trends for the future, in either basic designs or detailing, owing to new methods of fabrication? At the same time, bearing in mind the multiplicity of factors involved, what uses do you see for computer programming of optimisation of design, which is currently exercising the minds of the academic world?
