Structural Engineering Research at the Building Research Station

It is to be expected that the whole field of research work at the Building Research Station is of interest to the structural engineer, but in preparing a paper for this Institution it was clearly impracticable to cover this field. It is necessary therefore to explain that the author has chosen to describe a limited number of investigations now proceeding at the Station which were thought to be of particular interest to those concerned with structural engineering design. Two divisions of the Station are concerned primarily with engineering problems, namely the Engineering Division, headed by Dr. N. Davey, and the Soil Mechanics Division, headed by Mr. L. F. Cooling. The author is technically responsible for the structural aspects of the work in the Engineering Division and has therefore confined his remarks in the present paper to this limited field. F.G.
