THE PRESIDENT invited the meeting to accord a vote of thanks to Mr. Cousins for having prepared the paper and for having presented it so admirably. It was a very great pleasure to propose the meeting’s thanks to him because, although he had said that he
thought the particular building described had not much to recommend it from the structural point of view, Mr. Cousins was being unduly modest in that respect.

<h4>Mathematics and The Structural Engineer</h4>

Mathematics and The Structural Engineer

The place of mathematics in the profession of engineering science, and engineering design, comes under review from time to time. The most notable contribution of recent years, to this important topic was made by Sir Charles Inglis in a lecture1 to the Institution of Civil Engineers in December, 1947. His title was a broad one - "Mathematics in relation to engineering" - but that title was abundantly justified by the breadth of his exposition and the illumination of his insight. In this more detailed discussion, of the mathematical needs of a special class of engineers, the field is still very wide and some of the conclusions-if the discussion leads to any conclusions- may be of general interest and application.

<h4>The Use of Semi-Graphical Methods in the Stress and Deformation Analysis of Shell Forms</h4>

The Use of Semi-Graphical Methods in the Stress and Deformation Analysis of Shell Forms

The modern shell structure has to withstand internal and external pressures together with forces acting on the surfaces over relatively small areas. The advent of the large containment vessels in thc field of Nuclear Power Engineering (for example the Dounreay Sphere) introduced the need for a closer examination of the stresses andeformations In regions such as the sphere to cylindrical skirt connection and in the vicinity of lugs and various other attachments to the shell. The variety and relative complexity of the design problems encountered call for a flexible method capable of application to stress and deformation analysis over a wide field. A. S. Tooth and J. D. W.

Correspondence on Viewpoint on Cracks in Domestic Masonry Walls by Professor Iain MacLeod

I read Professor MacLeod’s ‘Viewpoint’ with great interest and, while agreeing generally with his views, would like to add one or two comments concerning the causes of cracking in masonry. Mr. William Skinner
