The PRESIDENT (Mr. Ewart S. Andrews, B.Sc., M.Inst.C.E.), who said he had worked in the same Government “galley” as Mr. Woods twenty-seven years ago, commented on Mr. Woods’s remarkable grasp of the subject of London Building Regulations, and added that the paper had helped to elucidate many of the matters which in the past might have appeared mysterious to engineers.
WITH the removal of the wooden stand between Courts Nos. 2 and 3 early this year disappeared one of the sole remaining relics of the old Worple Road days where the “All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club ” commenced its career many years ago.
This paper claims only to be a very brief survey of the problems presented to the engineer by earthquake shocks. It has been impossible to do more than deal in generalities; but it is hoped that the references given in the paper, and at the end, may be of some assistance to those engineers who wish to study the subject more deeply. The subject has here been discussed in three sections. In Section “A” the geological aspects have been discussed, while Section “B” treats of the behaviour of engineering structures during a shock, and Section “C” deals with the problem of building to resist shock.
