Buckling is usually associated with slender structures of stiff materials, such as steel and aluminium. This paper aim to show that it occurs, also, in foundation engineering and soil mechanics. Foundations and soil samples of relatively robust dimensions can be vulnerable to buckling when deformations are large, i.e. when the stiffness of the soil is low. E.C. Hambly

Discussion on Adhamiyah Bridge, Baghdad

Discussion on Adhamiyah Bridge, Baghdad

Mr Lee: It will be seen that our paper comprises two parts, the first on design and the second on construction. My co-author for Part 2, Mr Al-Bayah, was very much looking forward to being here in person as one of the representatives of the client and to participating in the discussion. Unfortunately pressure of work in Iraq has not permitted him to come to London at this time. He has asked me to express his regrets and to pass on the good wishes of himself and his colleagues in the Government of Iraq who were concerned with the bridge for an interesting evening of technical discussion.

Correspondence on Viewpoint on Why Not WL/8? by Andrew Beeby

I think that the general issues raised by the feature are important not only for reinforced concrete construction but also for the future of the whole of British industry. Dr. Beeby’s main plea, I think, is for ‘realistic simplicity’, and I support this completely. Mr. Dennis Cox

Microcomputers It is now nearly a year since Mr B. C. Bird asked his question about frame analysis programs for the 48K Spectrum. Since then we have had a substantial response from our readers, drawing attention to programs and problems associated with their use. This month we have three more letters. Mr K. Tregear, writing from Nizwa in the Sultanate of Oman, says that he was most interested to read, in the December issue, of the approach by Mr Bradfeld to the design of rectangular beams and slabs in accordance with the CP 110 idealised stress block.
