Presidential Address

The contents of the Jubilee Issue of The Structural Engineer constituted a concise review of the evolution of structural engineering during the first fifty years of life of the Institution and included prognostications of future trends, most of which have since proved to be sound. During the five years since this issue was published in 1958 there has been a remarkable upsurge of progress in practically all the fields of endeavour encompassed by our profession. Many ideas and new methods have been brought into or finally established in practice; many others are in process of investigation and development. During the same period there have been radical changes in general and financial policies and other extraneous matters which, though not directly connected with the science and art of structural engineering, have already affected significantly the demands which structural engineers and their associates in kindred professions must be prepared to meet in order fully to satisfy the needs of the community which they serve.
