Correspondence on Effective Bracing Systems for Temporary Grandstands by Dr. T. Ji and Dr. B.R. Ellis

Professor A. Bolton (F) I was interested to read the paper by Ji and Ellis. The static and dynamic stiffness of temporary structures is very important, as the authors’ results and recent accidents have shown, and when the structure is intended to carry a large number of excited people the effects can be very serious. It is therefore essential for all designers of such structures to take into account both static and dynamic loading and the authors have done well in bringing this matter into clear focus.
