A FEW tests have been made at the Building Research Station on short span reinforced brick masonry beams, such as might be used for lintels, and the results are thought to be of sufficient interest to justify publication, even though the investigation by itself is not comprehensive enough to warrant any definite pronouncement as to the reliability of this form of construction under all practical conditions.

Research abstracts The Structural Engineer has published abstracts of completed PhD theses from time to time in the past. In future these will appear on the ‘Research matters’ page. Anyone wishing to submit an abstract for consideration for publication should contact Dr Susan Doran, at the Institution, who will be pleased to supply further details.
Professor David Nethercot, FEng, Chairman of the Institution’s Research Panel, writes: ‘The principal objective of the Institution's Research Panel is to raise the profile of the importance and value of research among the membership. It does this in a variety of ways and starting with this issue of The Structural Engineer it will be publicising these more widely through a regular research matters page. The exact content will vary but, over the year; should include a mix of announcements and reports on R & D events, articles describing the work of selected research organisations, news of research initiatives - in short an easily scanned page of items designed to benefit the membership by keeping it abreast of the more important and relevant current research activity in structural engineering. Although it is the responsibility of the Research Panel to produce the copy, readers with potentially interesting contributions should contact Dr Susan Doran at the Institution about the possibility of making a contribution.’
