SP48-01

Date: 

January 1, 1975

Author(s):

Colin H. Davidson

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

48

Abstract:

Indstrialization of building affects each member of the building industry differently - consquently there is little agreement within the industry as to its exact nature. . .Introducing the performance concept increases the scope for innovation, but raises major difficulties of interpretation, demanding new skills within the industry.

Abstract:

This account of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) role in industrialized concrete construction is prefaced with a summary of the European experience, begun early in the 20th Century. . .The emphasis of the paper is on multifamily, highrise concrete construction; single-family residental construction is not addressed.

Norman F. Somes

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

Abstract:

The paper identifies and briefly discusses the factors that collectively influence the structural safety of a building. These include the probablilty of occurrence of extreme loading, the factors of design and construction process that determines the building's response, and the function of the building that influences both its design and the consquences of an extensive structural failure. . .Finally, conclusions and recommendation are made with respect to these deficiencies.
