The next British Code of Practice for composite structures in buildings, now in preparation, will not include composite columns. A simplified design method for such columns, originally developed for the draft for public comment of this Code, has been revised to take account of subsequent work and the publication of BS 5400: Part 5. This method and other recommendations on composite columns for buildings are now presented in Code form, with explanations, comparisons with other methods, and a worked example. R.P. Johnson and D.G.E. Smith

The demands of the internationalgrowth of trade and tourism have led to the development of many modern cargo and passenger handling systems of which the roll-on/roll-off (Ro/Ro) system is one. Ro/Ro ramps have enabled efficient Ro/Ro operations to be set up in ports where tidal ranges are large. M. Clift and I.B. Meeke

In February, when discussing snow loads, we suggested that it was difficult to believe that a committee had intended the permitted reductions in loading, allowed where large areas were supported, to be applied to snow loading. We also speculated that in commenting thus we might well be inviting yet another correction; and so indeed, up to a point, we were. Mr J. C. Thomson's letter arrived just too late for the February column. He comments: I was intrigued to read Mr W. G. Ellis’ comments on the ‘large area’ reductions in roof super loading that he has encountered in his checking activities ( Verulam, November 1979). Verulam
