By D. S. Mahon, J. C. Barford, W. Dawson

Plastics in construction constructions covers the lawsuits of a convention, held in London on June 14-16, 1965. This convention specializes in the functions of plastics fabrics in buildings.
This e-book emerged from 39 papers offered on the convention. The introductory papers describe the homes of plastics on the subject of construction buildings, and the industrial points, fireplace rules, and flammability of those fabrics. significant papers are dedicated to a number of parts of program of plastics, together with adhesives, polymer cements, cored chipboard devices, and fixed bushes. those themes are by way of discussions at the characterization, layout, and structural and actual houses of plastics. the ultimate chapters assessment the economic improvement and purposes of plastic fabrics.
This booklet will end up worthy to engineers, clothier, brands, and researchers within the allied fields.

The of the effect of regulations on the structural use of requirement to be satisfied for a given purpose can be plastics which could serve as a guide everywhere; expressed in a functional form, and a performance neither can a parochial attitude be adopted by confinstandard can be specified which is deemed to comply ing attention to the present position in the United with the requirement. Any material or form of conKingdom, since new building regulations for England struction, therefore, which has been shown by test and Wales are now being drafted, although those to be capable of giving the required standard of for Scotland have come into force.

We are looking forward to the general introduction, soon, of factory-made building units for both housing and commercial buildings. Plastics materials will be extensively used and it is imperative to proceed now with the active development of all aspects of plastics in such applications. One important topic is the assessment of the properties of both the thermosetting and thermoplastic materials which will be used. A certain amount of information is available about the static, time-dependent and dynamic testing procedures, but a good deal still remains to be done in all areas before plastics structures are readily acceptable.

4 Fire-resistance tests The test for elements of structure, called the fireresistance or fire-endurance test, is one which has been agreed in all countries concerned with these problems on broadly the same basis. While there is variation in detail there is little divergence on the aims of the test and how these can be realized. In this country the test is specified in BS 476, Part 1, Section 3, but the following four conceptions on which the test is based have general international acceptance. 1 Element of structure.
