The Structural Engineer

This feature is dedicated to Richard Hobin, a valued friend who, prior to his untimely and sudden death in November 1993, was responsible in a very major way for the planning and running of a new MSc course in Structural Design at UCL. The outline and contents of this paper were arranged in discussion with him. John R. Eyre, Patrick Morreau, Professor James Croll and William Addis

The Structural Engineer

This paper presents a method of assessment of the stiffness increase due to different types of non-structural screed. The types of screed considered are concrete screeds either floating, unbonded or bonded, which are the types of screed most commonly in use. The proposed model is validated against the results of a large number of tests carried out on difierent types of precast concrete floor construction, both in the laboratory and in the field. R.M.

What we did not seek to explain was the origin of our baptismal name - a matter which we know has puzzled not a few. As some may have guessed, we must needs claim some form of association with the Roman forerunner, ‘Verulamian’, of the town of St Albans, Hertfordshire. But then, why? Verulam
