THE author regards any factor affecting our great industry and profession as an engineering problem and therefore makes no excuses for introducing to the meeting some observed effects of the output of labour under varying conditions in structural engineering work, or for any other subject which might be claimed as the prerogative of another profession, for the author can give his personal assurance that all the subjects which he discusses have, in some form or another, come under the consideration
of a structural engineer.
M R. PERCY JOHN BLACK, L.R.I.B.A., the Institution’s newly elected President for the Session 1939-1940, is one of its oldest members. He was elected to membership in 1909-the year after the foundation of the Concrete Institute, which preceded the Institution of Structural Engineers.
ALTHOUGH great advance in structural knowledge has been made during the past fifty years as the result of research work carried out in various countries, there are still many questions upon which the structural engineer requires further knowledge before he can make his calculations with the degree of accuracy which every good engineer hopes to attain.
