Structures

  • A. L. Marshall

Abstract

While the behaviour of materials under various types of loading may be intrinsically interesting, its prime significance to the practitioner lies in the use to which they may be put. Behaviour and application are inter-dependent, however, so that just as effective application has to be founded on sound knowledge of behaviour, so study of behaviour must have regard to likely application. Now, therefore, we should turn to the structural use of concrete in the sea, although consideration is necessarily limited due to restrictions on space and because this is not a design manual. Nevertheless, some of the general and particular principles should be discussed as well as the constraints within which the designer has to operate.
