Dr W.W.L. Chan (F) I congratulate the authors (and thank them!) on their excellent and timely paper, drawing together some 25 years’ statistical data on gas explosions. At last we have a rational basis for reviewing acceptable risk and accidental design pressure!
Construction work for two new footbridges across the Thames at Charing Cross is about to begin. Pedestrians crossing the river will soon have the benefit of wide, modem walkways and impressive views upstream to the Palace of Westminster and downstream to St Paul’s Cathedral. The bridges are unique and their design and construction present new challenges to engineers, architects and contractors. John Parker
Due to their durability, aesthetic appeal and corrosion resistance, the use of stainless steels in construction is continuously increasing. Eurocode 3:Part l.4 covers the design of structural stainless steels and was issued in 1996. There is, however, a shortage of design guidance on the fire resistance of structural stainless steels, and this hinders the materials’ wider use in certain applications. Nancy Badoo
