Herbert Kempton Dyson, M.I.Struct.E., who died on the 15th January, at the age of 63, was the first Secretary of the Concrete Institute, which post he held from 1908 until 1917. He played an important part in both the founding of the Institute and its change in 1922 into the Institution of Structural Engineers. Elected to membership in 1917, he
served on the: Council of the Concrete Institute in 1921-2, as Honorary Editor of the Journal in 1923, and as Honorary Secretary in 1924-5; in addition he served on most of the Committees of the Institution.
On the other hand, the analogy between notched bars, as shown in Fig. 2 of Dr. Abeles’ contribution, and a bar firmly gripped in concrete was obvious. Fig. 30, reproduced from (28), clearly illustrated the effect of a notch on the stress-strain diagram.
WHILST the world appraises the ingenuity of the Structural Engineer, marvels at his daring and skill, is it not strange he shows so little concern about the looks of the structures he so copiously spews on every hand?
D.T. Lloyd Jones
