The Structural Engineer

In 1715 four gentlemen met in a coffee house in Fleet Street to discuss the needs of the Westminster poor, and from this meeting Westminster Hospital came into being four years later. A house was taken in Petty France, so named because it, was a haven for Huguenot refugees in the sixteenth century, where a dozen in-patients could be accommodated and assistance rendered to others.

IT is necessary to appreciate that there is no Law dealing exclusively with Building Contracts and reference to the Law of Contracts covers everyday transactions of every description, the buying and selling of goods and other dealings of that kind. If it is suggested in the following remarks that, an Engineer should follow certain procedure or take a certain course of action in dealing with various matters, let it be perfectly understood that the advice is given subject to the particular contract conditions containing nothing to the contrary.

The elastic equations of the hingeless arch are usually solved approximately by dividing the arch rib into a number of sections. In the case of the arch whose axis is a parabola and in which the depth varies parabolically from crown to springing, an exact solution is possible, even if ribshortening is taken into account. R.J.
