Timber frame housing The use of timber frame housing still tends to be regarded, in this country, as innovatory, even though more than 500 000 houses have been built using this method during the last 20 years and it is common practice in many other countries. However, it has recently attracted considerable comment by the media, much of it ill-informed. Mr Phillip Reece has now written seeking a better understanding of the practical options open when the alternatives are described simply as brick and timber. He points out that: Verulam

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.

Structural-Soil Interaction - a Different Approach

Extract from CP2004 Code of practice for foundations: 7.5 Bearing capacity and test loading 7.5.1 Bearing capacity of a pile. The bearing capacity of a pile is dependent on the size, shape and type of pile and on the properties of the soil in which it is embedded. The ultimate bearing capacity is the load at which the resistance of the soil becomes fully mobilized . . . Dennis Waite
