Open Discussion Learn to Live Without CP 114 by D.D. Matthews

In a previous open discussion at the Institution in January 1977 on the topic 'Towards a European Code for concrete - can concise Codes be compreshensible and comprehensive?', a wide range of opinion was expressed on the requirements for an ideal design Code. Re-reading the discussion leads me to the conclusion that, if as many views as possible are to be accommodated so that the Code can properly claim to be a consensus document, conciseness becomes almost an impossibility.
