Discussion on Design Practice and Snow Loading - Lessons from a Roof Collapse by Dr. N.F. Pidgeon, Dr. D.I. Blockley and Dr. B.A. Turner

Mr C. J. Judge (G) (Building Research Establishment): I would first like to congratulate all those concerned with the structure described in this paper for allowing the details of the failure to be published. It is only by publishing details of failures that other engineers can learn about the limitations in structural design.
