Padstones in blockwork Last month we had a query from Mr Cockerill regarding the stress that may be allowed under beams bearing onto blockwork. We have an answer to that query from Mr. B. A. Haseltine, thereby giving you the impression that we write this column only a few days before publication. (Actually, of course, we asked Mr. Haseltine for his opinion!) I would not want your column to become solely a means of getting rulings on the words used in Codes of Practice, but I thought I might comment on the query from Mr Cockerill in the April issue. Mr Cockerill fears that, as Codes become more complicated and lengthy, there will be problems unless everything is spelt out exactly; however, when one looks into his question, the words are quite clear!

An Equivalent Frame Method for Slab-column Structures

An Equivalent Frame Method for Slab-column Structures

In this combined experimental and theoretical study the observed sequence of cracking in flat slabs is described and its effect on the distribution of moments examined. A modvied equivalent frame method for flat slabs which is simpler to use than the ACI approach has been developed. The moments predicted by the frame method are compared with other frame analyses and with the results of model tests. A.E. Long and D.J. Cleland
