Reviews the working practices of 30 companies which have a particular concern in the control of weight in structures on or offshore, and records their views on the origins and solutions of the problems involved. It is evident that, although effective management of weight is possible, it is not always achieved. Apparent causes of poor weight control are identified and a scheme of weight management is described which can overcome defects in the existing systems of control. Emphasis is given to the view that weight control, to be effective, must always be treated as an independent engineering discipline and given due importance and authority within the overall project. The use of computers in weight control and existing weighing techniques are discussed in the appendices.
