Discussion on Service Reservoir Design, with Particular Reference to Economics and the 'Simply Supported Wall' Concept by J. Walmsley

Mr E. H. Thorpe (M) (South West Water Authority): It has been my privilege to work alongside Mr Walmsley since 1974, during which time limit state design and BS 5337 were introduced and applied to the programme of investigation into the many alternative ways of designing service reservoirs and the considerations to be taken into account. From the paper you will have seen that, in one particular aspect, we have not adhered to BS 5337 and that is in our use of ‘option 2’ for the determination of thermal steel areas for reservoir roof flat slabs. Perhaps Mr Walmsley would like to make further comments on this point.
