My first desire is to thank the members of this Institution most sincerely for the honour they have conferred on me by electing me their President for the Session 1949-50. Conscious as I am of my shortcomings for this high office, I can only promise to serve you to the best of my ability, to endeavour to uphold the high traditions of my predecessors and to try to merit the confidence you have placed in me.
In your issue of August, 1949, No. 8, I found a report of a discussion on Dr. H. Gottfeldt’s paper, “Curved Bridges-and why they should be welded.” From this report I learned that during the discussion the author and Mr. Cadwell expressed some apprehensions as to certain details of a Swedish curved steel bridge mentioned in Dr. Gottfeldt’s paper. Being responsible for the design of this bridge, which belongs to the Swedish State Railways, I feel obliged to inform you that the remarks seem to be based on misunderstandings and incomplete information.
