The paper describes the development of the design of Kylesku Bridge as a sequence of design studies and decisions, from studies of the location of the new bridge and of different types of structure to final design. The new bridge is a frame with V-shaped supports. It is built in concrete and the deck is a box girder that is prestressed. The bridge was designed to be built in stages and within constraints that were specified in the contract documents. J. Nissen, K. Falbe-Hansen and H.S. Stears

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

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

Liability - a Review

Liability - a Review

The papers and a summary of the discussion of the 1984 IABSE Henderson colloquium on liability will be printed and available for purchase shortly. However, to present the major conclusions and problems identified in this IABSE colloquium to a much wider spectrum of professionals within the construction industry, for the purpose of delineating positive steps for reform, a 1-day symposium will be held jointly by the Institution of Structural Engineers and the International Association for Bridge & Structural Engineering on 29 May 1985, further details of which will be published shortly. In the meantime, Alec Sandberg summarises the main points discussed, conclusions reached, and problems identified. A.C.E. Sandberg

Soil Buckling and the Leaning Instability of Tall Structures

Soil Buckling and the Leaning Instability of Tall Structures

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
