JUST AS Louis XIV of France is reputed to have said to the Paris Parliament in 1655, “L’état c’est moi,” so Major Reginald Ferdinand Maitland might well say on this Jubilee Year that in him is represented the Institution of Structural Engineers. During the twenty-eight years of his devoted service as Secretary of the Institution he has provided the continuity of purpose, the wealth of experience and the driving force which has made the Institution the outstanding and world famed technical body that it is today. His influence to this end on the long list of eminent engineers who have yearly filled the Presidential Chair has had to be felt personally to be appreciated. Added to this, are the dignity, charm and friendly manner which have induced the greatest respect and loyalty from his staff, and have made successive Presidents and Councils look on him as a personal friend.

Aluminium Structures

ALUMINIUM owes its early development as a structural material to the aircraft industry, a field in which the low density of the material is a factor of paramount importance, outweighing its high initial cost. Its applications in other branches of structural engineering (specialist or experimental at first) began only about twenty five years ago, and progress was slow until the end of the last war when appreciation of the results of wartime research and development and the influence of the post-war shortage of steel led to a new interest in aluminium. During the last ten years an increasing number of light alloy structures have been built and while aluminium has been found to be a true economic solution in several specialist cases, it has been used as an interesting and novel solution in others. Research andevelopment have continued, and today aluminium alloys are available with properties appropriate to structural uses and are obtained in a wide range of sections, plates, sheets, etc. Gilbert Roberts

Within the preceding pages we have traced the history of the Institution from its beginning as the Concrete Institute to the present day. We have shown how the membership of the Institution has grown from a small body of men to one of over eight thousand engineers drawn from all quarters of the globe, how its activities have expanded from the relatively restricted field of concrete to cover all types of structures in all the materials of construction and how, step by step, national and international recognition has been given to the exclusive title of “ Chartered Structural Engineer ” which our Members and Associate-Members are proud to bear.
