This paper presents a simple beam line model for the analysis of braced Composite frames with semi-rigid beam-to-column connections. Based on the proposed model, equations and design charts for determining the moments and deflections of the composite beam, that take into account both joint flexibility and variation of beam sectional properties, were formulated. The moments and deflections so obtained were demonstrated to be in excellent agreement with those determined from rigorous finite element analyses. Since the proposed equations are reliable and easy to apply, the role of semi-rigid connections may be better appreciated and utilised with confidence by practising engineers.

The City of Lille's Euralille development includes a new TGV station. This paper describes the development of the design of the roof which comprises slender steel arches which support the roofing by means of cable-stiffened beams. It also describes various aspects of working on a project in France, and some details of the construction phase. The fire engineering studies are covered in some detail.

Qualifications of Building Control Officers
Stan Lawrence was not satisfied by points made in Verulam, The Structural Engineer Vol
73, N0.20, 17 October 1995, and has written :
Despite apparent frustration amongst members, to insist that Building Control Officers concern themselves with economy would be wrong. It would be unnecessary and intrusive.
