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.
Almost a year has elapsed since the Code of Practice for Reinforced Concrete was issued
by the Building Research Board, during which time structural engineers have had opportunities of studying and applying the various recommendations. The latter cover so many aspects of design and construction that, although much has already been written in commendation and in criticism, it is felt that there is yet room for further ventilation of opinion before the Code in its present, or in a modified form, passes into more extended use. In the course of a single paper it is not possible to deal adequately with more than a few clauses of the Code, for which reason the author is restricting his treatment principally to the consideration of concrete stresses and
the design of slabs and columns.
