This report has been compiled by a committee of the Institution after a review of safety problems in relation to a wide range of structures. In its report the committee
makes a fresh approach to structural safety problems with a view to helping the development of more rational methods of design. No attempt has been made to put forward recommended numerical values for load factors applicable to the various mediums of construction, this being considered to be a matter for Codes of Practice committees and others working in the respective fields.
MR. W. E. BLIZARD, B.Sc., M.I.C.E., M.I.W.E. President of the British Section of the Societe, was in the chair and Dr. S. B. Hamilton, M.Sc., B.Sc.(Eng.), M.I.C.E., President of the Institution, accompanied him on the platform.
THE PHESIDENT, introducing Mr. Dick, said that he was the Superintending Structural Engineer who had been responsible for the design and the conduct of the very remarkable work of which he was going to speak. He was known well to many who were present that evening, so that he needed little introduction; in any case he was well able to speak for himself, and his work would speak for him too.
