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 !

The Interactive Design of Portal Framed Buildings

The Interactive Design of Portal Framed Buildings

A review of computer systems philosophy is presented. The effect of this philosophy on software development is examined. A typical suite of interactive programs for the plastic design of multibay portal frames in steel, PORTAL is described in detail. A short design study is included that highlights the effect on costs of varying the number of portal frames of a typical building. R.E. Yeadon

Code Servicing Panel on Rationalisation of y-Factors- Second Report to the Structural Codes Advisory

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.
