The Structural Engineer, Volume 72, Issue 12, 1994
Results are presented of tests on 10 transverse strips of reinforced concrete voided slabs subjected to transverse shear. The need for web reinforcement to control diagonal cracks is demonstrated. The failure loads and modes of the strips are compared with those predicted by a proposed theory and reasonable agreement obtained. In addition, reasonable agreement is obtained between the theory and independent test data. Finally design and assessment procedures are suggested. Professor L.A. Clark and P. Thorogood
Hines Meadow multistorey carpark is located in the town centre of Maidenhead and provides 700 spaces on 10 parking levels. Commissioned by the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead, this development combines an unusual inclined front elevation with high quality finishes to make a very attractive landmark (see Fig I). P.W. Thompson and A.S. Yates
Mr Peter Campbell (Past President) You have rightly drawn attention to the enthusiasm and dedication of all the people involved that produced a fine solution to the problem, but I suspect that the client had a special role in this particular project. All too frequently the client is a remote person who contributes very little, and I suspect that Stuart Lipton and his team played a very major role in the whole thing. Could you tell us a little more about the actual way in which they did contribute, and perhaps the drive they engendered in the whole of the design process that resulted in the adopted solution.
