Mr A. C. G. Hayward (F) (Cass Hayward & Partrlers): Steel composite decks, along with inverted T pretensioned beams and in situ infill as tested by the authors, currently provide the most durable forms of short-span bridge. Both feature a reliable jointless factory-made easily built skeleton on which is cast a slab with flexibility for plan geometry and tolerance.
A simple, approximate procedure for predicting the shear and normal stress concentrations in the adhesive layer of plated, rein forced concrete beams is presented. The theoretical results are compared, and show close agreement, with available test results and with rigorous theoretical analyses based on partial interaction theory. T.M. Roberts
Mr M. V. E. Donnetti (M) (Husband & Co.): I had the privilege of being the Resident Engineer for the Breydon Bridge project. You will have gathered from reading the paper and from the presentation tonight that we began with a feeling of wild enthusiasm, which remained with us right through the project on site.
