1. The Panel is extremely conscious of the ongoing nature of the work necessary to put limit-state design using partial safety factors on a consistent and logical basis and of the amount of research that will be required to provide a sound basis for this. This second report is directed at offering some general recommendations to Code drafting committees when dealing with partial safety factors, suggest in guidelines for the experimental calibration of these on the lines of the suggestions made in paragraphs 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the first report*, and indicating subjects where further study and research is desirable.

Correspondence on Calculation of Deflections in Reinforced Concrete Flexural Members by D. J. Gunara

Correspondence on Calculation of Deflections in Reinforced Concrete Flexural Members by D. J. Gunara

Dr. Gunaratnam has undertaken a useful service for designers in comparing curvature and deflection calculated according to CP 110 Appendix A with the values obtained by simpler methods. However, his statement that the latter ‘lead to an underestimation of the curvature in all cases’ is startling for, if I have understood him correctly, he is saying that, by taking account of the stiffening effect of the concrete in tension, the calculated curvature is actually increased !

Review of Progress in Computer Uses for the Design of Structural Steelwork

Review of Progress in Computer Uses for the Design of Structural Steelwork

There has been an increasing interest in the past decade in the use of computers for the design of structures. The rapid increase in computer technology has encouraged this interest and provided a stimulus for the development of programs that can be made available on the engineer3 desk. This paper presents a review of the current position from the point of view of the engineer seeking to gain information. It indicates the limitations of computer applications, gives some guidance on the types of program available, and considers possible future developments. A. Weller
