Mr. P. S. A. Berridge (Assistant Engineer (Bridges), Western Region, British Railways) first said how much he appreciated being allowed to join in the discussion. It was a privilege for which he was most grateful.
Mr. Peter Mason (Member of Council) said it had been mentioned in the paper that it looked as though the Roman engineering organization for large engineering projects was very similar to that of today. There had been bills of quantities, etc. and work had been carried out by contractors. He wished to know how the engineering had been done. Had it been done by military engineers or had there been trained civilian engineers?
With reference to the article, ‘The elastic analysis of simple rectangular grids by virtual work methods’ by J. B. Martin, BSc, PhD, appearing in The Structural Engineer in June 1963, I would like to point out that a numerical error has been committed in the solution for the numerical example given in the article.
