A brief history is given of spectator facilities for the game of squash and related sports, culminating in the proposed ‘all glass’ demountable courts for use in suitable indoor spectator arenas. Design constraints and two alternative preferred structural forms for such courts are described, one utilising the glass walls as the only vertical loadbearing elements to support a court ceiling. The theoretical arrd load testing justification of these structures is considered, together with some proposed constructional details. Plastic is assessed as an alternative material to glass, Some other uses for related loadbearing glass structures are suggested. G.R. Hill

An Assessment of High Aluminia Cement Concrete in the Superstructures of Existing Buildings. Report

Nearly 7 years have elapsed since the publication, in 1975, of the BRAC Sub-Committee P's report on high alumina cement concrete, and the Institution is concerned that many properties containing HACC that have been appraised by an engineer and found safe and adequate for purpose are still being valued lower than similar ones with OPCC. A working Party has considered the problem and has produced the assessment below.
