The optimum design of a range of steel roof structures is established using a combination of non-linear programming methods. The objective function is cost orientated and a suitable cost model is described. The relative costs of seven types of roof structure are compared and conclusions drawn as to cost effectiveness. A.B. Crawford and W. M. Jenkins

The computer debate From Mr M. K. Hurst his views on the use of computers: I have been following with interest the debate on computers which has been continuing in the Verulam columns, and I would like to add my two-pennyworth. It seems to me that computers have two distinct advantages over the human brain-their ability both to store and retrieve vast quantities of information and to perform lengthy calculations on them, both operations being performed extremely rapidly and accurately. As long as computers are used to perform just these functions, as is the case in most business applications, they are being used to their best advantage. Verulam

Correspondence on Crack Control in Concrete Bridges by L.A. Clark and G. Elliott

Correspondence on Crack Control in Concrete Bridges by L.A. Clark and G. Elliott

S. B. Desai (M): It can be observed from the formulae given in the paper (as well as clause A.3.2 of CP 110) that the calculated crack widths in RC members are proportional to the covers provided to the reinforcing bars. Because of this, the design of structures exposed to severe conditions (e.g. a marine environment) seems to have to satisfy somewhat over-stringent criteria.

The Erection of a 140 m - High Steel Stack in Taiwan

The subject of this paper is the field erection of the off gas stack at Chin Shan nuclear power station, Taiwan. This is a braced frame structure composed of tubular members. The leg splices were site welded and all other connections bolted. A.P. Mann
