THE PRESIDENT said the meeting had heard the presentation of a most illuminating paper on the use which Engineers could make of that remarkable modern scientific development-the electronic brain or computer. What had impressed him was the astonishingly wide scope of the electronic computer extending from the solution of the most intricate arithmetical problems to playing a game of draughts against the operator. Incidentally this latter faculty might offer the operator one method of using some small part of the immense saving in time resulting from the use of the computer which it was claimed could solve in an hour numerical problems which would take a human brain three months to solve. Dr. R. K. Livesley
A PREVIOUS paper (hereinafter referred to as Part I) indicated a method of obtaining the sway critical load of any symmetrical single bay rigid frame and gave numerical results for a particular family of frames with constant stanchion sections and all the load applied at the top. R. B. L. Smith and W. Merchant
The post-war years have seen vast developments in industrial Wales-old industries have been modernised, and many new industries established-and I therefore make no apology for selecting "Recent trends in the design of Industrial Buildings" as the subject for this address. A.V. Hooker
