Mathematics and the Structural Engineer Written Discussion on the Paper by E. H. Bateman, M.A., B.Sc., Ph.D., M.I.Struct.E., M.I.C.E., A.M.I.Mech.E., F.R.Ae.S.

Mr. P. A. CAMPBELL (Associate-Member) referred to the Author’s suggestion that the Institution should not exclude from membership potential designers who may have a low mathematical ceiling and to his remark that a talent for design in the sense of creative invention rather than analytical refinement is often incompatible with a talent for mathematics. The latter was very true and he thought the Author would agree that those with a talent for design and a low mathematical ceiling should follow an architectural rather than a structural engineering career.
