The Bridge Code (BS 5400) is being prepared in ten Parts. Parts 1,2,4,7,and 8, dealing essentially with principles, loading, and concrete bridges, were published in June 1978. They have been followed by Part 5, Composite bridges (May 1979), which is the subject of this paper; Part 10, Fatigue, which includes fatigue of shear connectors is yet to be published. A brief account is given here of the drafting of Part 5, of the design studies and trial designs that have been done, and of its principal recommendations. Reference is made to its relationship with other Parts of the Code, to a Commentary on Part 5, and to the need to set up a procedure for recording experience of its use. R.P. Johnson

Discussion on The use of Lightweight Aggregates for Structural Concrete by M.E.R. Little

Mr. J. Bobrowski (F): Lightweight concrete is a wonderful material and, considering the amount of information already available, it is hard to believe how timber-or even dense concrete, for that matter-would have passed for use under the Building Regulations if either of them was discovered today.

Verulam, Reversible Loads, RC and PSC Offshore, etc., etc.

Verulam’s ruminations on ‘Loads and Codes‘ in the April issue of The Structural Engineer have elicited the following, immediate response from the President, Professor A. J. Harris, CBE: Verily, Verulam knoweth that of which he speaketh; he and his drinking companion are on to something. In vino veritas!

No more complaints, at least for the time being, about the paucity of correspondence; this month has brought an abundance of interesting material, and we are filled with a great contentment. Long may it continue! Verulam
