Foundations The piers of the main spans are founded on cast in situ cylinders which were constructed in open excavations except at the main tower pier no. 3 where a temporary cofferdam was required. The abutments are founded on precast concrete piles. Ismail. I. Al-Bayah and D.J. Lee

Colloquium: The Childhood of Prestressing. The Childhood of Prestressing - an Introduction

Colloquium: The Childhood of Prestressing. The Childhood of Prestressing - an Introduction

The subject of prestressing covers a process that is relatively new and the inventor and chief protagonist of which died only 20 years ago-Eugene Freyssinet. Indeed, the major innovations in prestressed concrete, and the notable structures that have resulted, have come about in the last 40 years or so; the ‘childhood’ will therefore deal only with a short time-span, up to about 20 years ago.

The Structural Use of Chipboard for Flooring. A State-of-the-Art Report Prepared Jointly by the Inst

The Structural Use of Chipboard for Flooring. A State-of-the-Art Report Prepared Jointly by the Inst

The Institution accepted a suggestion from the Standing Committee on Structural Safety that guidance on the structural use of chipboard for flooring should be produced which would take into account long-term load effects, deterioration, moisture, misuse, vibration, impact, and local application of load. The Standing Committee pointed out that the properties of chipboard are somewhat different from those of traditional flooring materials in that the critical mode of failure is more likely to be by punching or shear, particularly where there are heavy concentrations of applied load. As the Timber Research & Development Association (TRADA) had, at the same time, requested Government financial assistance to produce a similar document, it was agreed that a joint IStructE/TRADA Working Party should be set up to produce a state-of-the-art report on flooring before the end of 1983.
