Abstract:

The report considers the use of plastic materials in the design of new structural systems. It presents a complete design for a 100-man bathhouse to be constructed of plastics. The preliminary design is based upon a uniformly distributed load of 50 lbsq ft with a safety factor of design. Also included are a material selection scheme for the design of such facilities, a design summary, and a discussion of current methods of testing specimens made of plastic materials.
