Mr. Archibald Henderson, M.I.C.E., of Cults, Aberdeenshire, who was elected to Membership of the Institution in 1942, died in a nursing home on the 6th April, 1947. Mr. Henderson had wide experience and was responsible for the design of a large ore storage pier in Spain and several harbour works in this country. Later he became resident engineer on the construction of harbour developments in Brazil costing £6,000,000. One of his largest war-time jobs as a consulting engineer was the reconstruction of Princes Pier, Greenock.
This Report deals with the effects, on structures situated in mining districts, of subsidence caused by the underground working of minerals, and with the precautions to be taken in designing such structures.
When the Author was invited to read this Paper before the Western Counties Branch of the Institution of Structural Engineers, it was suggested that the approach to the subject should be carefully planned. It was felt that it should appeal to those members of the branch who were unfamiliar with the methods outlined, to others who wished to know more about its application and to the graduate and student members.
