The Structural Engineer as Arbitrator, Expert Witness and Advocate

Arbitration is a method of settling disputes by referring them to one or more specially appointed persons, instead of in the Courts. A great variety of matters can be referred to arbitration, but its advantages are greatest when the issues are of a technical nature. It has the more general advantage that the time and place of the hearing can be fixed to suit the convenience of the parties and others engaged in the proceedings. The text-books on the subject do not stress this point. Gower Pimm
