The CHAIRMAN (Mr. Ewart S . Andrews, BSc., M.Inst.C.E., Vice-president) proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Roberts for the excellent material he had provided for study, and for the excellent manner in which he had described the properties of the high tensile steel dealt with.
SIR,- Mr. Faber raises a question which requires ventilation and, even more than that,
action. The trend to-day is for the architect to become the employer of engineers, with the result that the latter are inclined to suffer. Each of them, whether engineer or architect, follows a profession which requires no adulation on my part, but why should either profession become the servant of the other? Rather, they should work together in harmony. I heartily agree with all that Dr. Faber says in his article.
THE most readily understood method of dealing with eccentric load (or, which is
much the same thing, with bending moment) is that of the Equivalent Axial Load. By this
method one takes the total actual load on the column and adds to it an amount to correspond with the bending moment. The sum is called the “total equivalent axial load,” and the column is designed upon it, without further reference to the bending moment.
