Dr A. P. Mann (F) (Allott & Lomax) Could you give an indication of the level of earthquake intensity for which you had to design the superstructure?
Wet and dry timber Mr Steer, Chairman of BSI Committee B/525/5 - Structural use of timber writes: There has been increasing use of ‘wet wood’, i.e. timber with a moisture content exceeding 20% for situations where ‘dry wood’ (moisture content less than 20%) is intended (the majority of timber designs carried out to BS 5268 The structural use of timber employ dry exposure stress values).

This paper describes a programme of work on the testing of hollow plank floor systems under static loads. Particular issues addressed include the need to estimate the transverse load distribution in a floor during a test, and the scope for extrapolation of behaviour from the results of tests carried out at lower loads. The research described focuses on these aspects and leads to specific recommendations for load testing of hollow plank floors. R.M. Moss
