Scope and Content

File documents the work of the Lightweight Enclosures Unit (LEU) which was set up by Frank Newby and Cedric Price after their completion of a UK government research programme into air structures in 1969 (see Air Structures Research AP144.S2.D63). The work of LEU included research and design into the social, economic and structural development of lightweight enclosures. The LEU published a bibliography for the industry on air structures in 1972 titled 'Air Structures Bibliography, B0001-0069 and B0070-0119. It also helped produce the report BS6661:1986 'Design, construction and maintenance of single-skin air supported structures', and reviewed lightweight enclosures in AD 8/71, p 465. LEU was commissioned to write 'Air Support Structures: BSI Draft for Development Code of Practice' (DD50). This work is documented in DOE Air Structure (AP144.S2.D91). Frank Newby continued to work on the review of DD50 up until the 1980s. Material in this file was produced between 1956 and 1993.

Group DR2004:1356 contains a 1973 drawing attributed to Pierre Martin for S.A.S. (Lausanne).
