Abstract:
Mr. Smith was assigned the task of writing a report contributing to rational practice with respect to openings in concrete construction, in which there have been many abuses-"Conditions requiring unframed openings; effect of openings of various sizes on stresses and deflections; effect of location of opening; special reinforcement about openings; shrinkage stresses at openings; early form work removal; recommended practice in design." This partial or progress report, prepared by Mr. Smith, has been approved by A. E. Lindau and Prof. G.A. Maney as the two critic members of the committee.
