In the structural field the methods of designing have been geared to the development of materials...In a more current appraisal we see steel and concrete being updated still further. Pre-stressed concrete is a common sight in present day construction work and, to a lesser extent, the educated eye sees rigid frames designed to ultimate load criteria. Here again are cases where materials are studied and found to possess characteristics that are adaptable to advance methods. The key to all such improvements is still the realization and utilization of material properties.
