Aeronautics and the World of Engineering Strucutres. Discussion on the paper by Sir Alfred PugsleyOBE DSc MlStructE MICE FRS FRAeS (Past President)

The Chairman, after thanking Sir Alfred for his paper, commented on the apparent time-lag, due to matters of military secrecy and commercial interests, between the solution of aeronautical problems and publication. There seemed in this respecto be an essential difference between aeronautical engineering and ordinary civil structural engineering, where there had always been a tradition of publishing the results of investigations as soon as they were done.
