This paper examines the limitations of methods used almost universally for the calculation of wind loads on vertical and horizontal latticed structures. As a result of difficulties experienced in the application of these methods to the design of cranes, a comprehensive review of past wind-tunnel tests, supplemented by additional testing, has been undertaken. The results have led to the formulation of new methods of design which are applicable to a wide range of latticed structures and also cover non-orthogonal presentations to the wind. J.F. Eden, A.J. Butler and J. Patient
The ‘one off’ approach to the design and construction of a multiplicity of buildings of similar use, size, design specification, and finish, together with the potential for standardisation of some types of structure, has been in the minds and thoughts of many involved in the construction of buildings. This has received some official recognition in the setting up of organisations such as CLASP, SCOLA, NBA, etc. L.E. Nowell
Brick cladding for steel frames Dr. John Morton of the Brick Development Association has written seeking the assistance of our readers: For some years now, we have had many technical inquiries concerning brickwork used as a cladding to steel framed buildings. This subject has now moved up our programme of work, and a publication is to be prepared on brick clad steel framed buildings. Outside consultants are to be used to write this booklet, which is concerned with single and multistorey structures, the brief for which has been written by BDA and British Steel Corporation-the two joint sponsors.
