This paper deals with the structures on the section of the Black Country route contained within the boundaries of the Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council, and the process by which the design of the structures has evolved, as influenced by the complex ground conditions that exist over the length of the site. The scheme is currently under construction, hence the difficulties which are being encountered, and the solutions to the problems arising from them, will be described. A.G. Mordey

Behaviour of Connections in Frames of Fibre-Reinforced-Polymer Section

Behaviour of Connections in Frames of Fibre-Reinforced-Polymer Section

Five tests on frame subassemblies have been conducted to study the behaviour of flange cleated connections made of fibre-reinforced-polymer section. Full-size beam-to-column members jointed by bolting and bonding were tested to failure. All members were made by the pultrusion process. A.J. Bass and J.T. Mottram

Academia. The Changing Academic Scene

Academia. The Changing Academic Scene

The recent explosion in the number of universities provides an opportune occasion to reflect briefly on the changes that have taken place in academia generally and in structural engineering at the University of Birmingham in particular. The accelerating pace of change has become especially marked in the last decade and this is well illustrated by the changes which have taken place within civil engineering at Birmingham. Not least among these changes was the transition in 1988 from a Department to a School when Civil Engineering became a budget centre responsible for all its own staff costs, for example, and the newly formed School manifestly displayed a financial accountability comparable with any large department within an industrial organisation.

Branch Viewpoints. The Structural Steel-to-Concrete Interface

Branch Viewpoints. The Structural Steel-to-Concrete Interface

The part of a building or structure that often gives the greatest difficulty in design and construction is the interface between structural steel and concrete. This may occur in new build or refurbishment work. The requirements for one engineer to have overall responsibility for all of the structure are well known. But the steelwork details are often prepared by a subcontractor, and there can be difficulties in making connections to concrete construction completed by another subcontractor. Peter H. Handley
