In January 1967 the Monopolies Commission was asked to report ‘on the general effect on the public interest of certain restrictive practices so far as they prevail in relation to the supply of professional services’. In its reference to the Commission the Government specified seven practices, including restriction on entry to a profession by the passing of prescribed examinations; the remaining practices were those which, by long-standing convention, specify fees, the terms and conditions upon which services are to be supplied, restriction upon advertising and other matters.

The Design and Construction of Kingston Bridge and Elevated Approach Roads, Glasgow

Following an outline of the events forming the background to the project, the authors have set down their approach to the decisions which were required at the various stages of its development. The major disciplines are stated and reasons for the choice of the particular layout, articulation, materials and finishes finally adopted are given. W.A.F. Fairhurst, A. Beveridge and G.F. Farquhar

Special Study Groups

Special Study Groups

The pilot scheme of eight Special Study Groups is now in full operation. Each works under the direction of a Convener appointed by the Council, who is personally responsible for organizing the work of his Group, conducting correspondence, producing and exchanging draft documents, etc. The general procedure for the working of a Study Group is set out on this page; some such simple rules are clearly necessary but it is the hope of the Council that the strength of a Study Group will lie in its informality and the opportunity it provides for members in all parts of the world to exchange ideas and experience. Members interested in contributing to one or other of the eight groups now working are invited to get in touch with the appropriate Convener at the address, given below. Full details of the purpose and work programme of each Study Group will be found in recent issues of The Structural Engineer under the references given.

Unequal Axial Stresses in Coupled Walls

Unequal Axial Stresses in Coupled Walls

The transfer of stress between two walls that are connected by beams, when the walls are subjected to different axial stresses, is evaluated. Methods of calculation are given for the following cases : firstly, when loads are applied during construction and therefore affect only the section of the frame already constructed; and secondly, when loads are applied after completion of the structure. A solution for the case of unequal stresses applied at the top of the structure is implied in the first method. The solutions are based on the simplification that the beams connecting the two walls can be replaced by a continuous connecting medium. Expressions are given for the total shear in the connecting medium, measured from the top of the wall to any point along the height of the wall, for the local beam shears and for the horizontal deflection of the walls.
