Aluminium Structures in the Entertainment Industry will have a wide appeal and is of particular interest to riggers, users, owners and anyone about to purchase, or involved in the maintenance of trusses, towers and other aluminium structures. To date it is the only publication on the subject, and the title is set to become the standard reference work in its field.

The product has been added to your basket. Writing a book, rather than the series of short articles Peter Hind has done in the past for Protocol, is more like a running leap than a short jump. Hind has managed to do it and land on his feet. Certainly anyone interested in the design and use of aluminum structures in the entertainment industry, and who has a bit of background in high school-level physics should find Aluminium Structures in the Entertainment Industry interesting and informative reading.

He starts with the fundamentals and works up to applications. Chapters one and two are about aluminum: Chapter four looks at some of the designs of trusses and towers that are on the market and points out some of their weak points. Hind does this while avoiding turning the chapter into a commercial pitch. Chapters five and six cover design standards and safety factors. Chapters seven through twelve analyze the forces involved in vari-ous truss applications, while chapter thirteen looks at the forces involved in stages, both from the supported load and from wind outdoors.

Chapter fourteen covers user information, inspection, and records maintenance.

This is the only chapter in which the balance is off be-tween generic information and commercial interests. The final chapter is a look to the future, where Hind questions if stage structures can get much larger using current technology, but he sees greater professionalism and accep-tance of responsibility by those designing and building temporary aluminum structures. Personally, I found the sections dealing with the fundamental properties of aluminum and dealing with wind loads out-doors most interesting.

Hind points out the folly of backing up synthetic roundslings with steel cables to stop a truss from falling in the event of a fire by quoting U. OSHA regulations for slings, but a graph in chapter two shows that at degrees C, about the flash point of paper, T6 aluminum has lost more than half its tensile strength. A truss will fail in a fire, whether the slings hold or not. The sec-tion in chapter twelve on guy ropes and wind loads was also interesting. The technique of using ballast to terminate the guy ropes is discussed in great detail, with lots of trig formulas and coefficients of static friction.

It takes a lot of weight to provide a moderate amount of horizontal bracing. If the reader is unfamiliar with basic concepts such as force vectors, this meandering structure can be confounding. There is also the free exchange in the text of measures of mass for measures of force that is common in practical engineering, but that can get the novice confused. The topic that I wish Hind had covered in more detail is how one calculates the loading on chain hoists supporting a truss. It would have been nice if he had presented at least one of these methods in Aluminium Structures.

In spite of these few complaints, I can recommend Aluminium Structures in the Entertainment Industry to readers of Protocol who are involved in specifying or using trusses. Theaters -- Stage-setting and scenery. Stage machinery -- Handbooks, manuals, etc.
