Reasons for certification
In spite of the obscure reasons sometimes sought, certification is only ever brought into being at the express wish of good manufacturers and constructors:
- as proof of high quality
- in order to free themselves of lower
- in order to receive suitable reimbursement quality competitors for high quality work

This paper describes a technique for the ultimate limit state analysis or design of reinforced concrete slabs. The modified strip method presented is a development of the strip technique using linear and quadratic programing optimisation. The first stage of
the procedure uses linear programing to find the distribution of loads between the strips which, in the analysis case, leads to the maximum collapse load factor or, in the design case, the minimum reinforcement requirement.

The millennium computer ‘time bomb’ potentially creates an enormous problem for all businesses. Many consultants, contractors and clients are already working closely together to address this issue and to consider solutions. It is important that the dangers facing consultants are recognised and that appropriate steps are taken to ensure that their practices are fully protected.
