Hybrid structures We have received a letter signed jointly by Dr. D. D. Matthews, Chairman CSB/39 (concrete Code), and Mr B. A. Haseltine, Chairman CSB/33 (masonry Code): The January, February, May, June, and September 1980 issues of The Structural Engineer contained a running debate on the subject of the restraint of loadbearing masonry walls by precast concrete floors and the implications for the robustness of hybrid structures. We realise, from the correspondence to Verulam and from questions raised at other meetings, that this is a subject that is bothering many members of our profession. We thought, therefore, that it would be helpful if we gave our joint views on the subject. Verulam
