January 1971 was the first occasion that the Institution examined candidates for corporate membership in the Part 3 Examination only; and the first time that the Technician Test was set. This review of the performance of both groups of candidates is based upon the reports of the respective examiners, all of whom are practising chartered structural engineers with an average age of well below forty.

Discussion The British Embassy, Rome by Edmund Happold

Discussion The British Embassy, Rome by Edmund Happold

Mr. J. C. Knight: I became concerned with the building some ten years ago when the general scheme was reaching an advanced formative stage, and it was necessary to consider the mechanical, electrical and engineering services. Our first task was to analyse the building to see whether there was anything very special in the way of services required. Of course, as Rome has a very hot climate we were concerned primarily with the need for air conditioning. Ten years or so ago air conditioning for an office building was unusual even in Rome and so we paid particular attention to the way in which the interior of this building would be affected by the wide climatic changes which would be experienced.

Synopsis High Rise Building in the London Borough of Brent 1965-70 by F. Charles Greenfield, Ronald

The principal theme underlying the paper is the development-from a structural engineering standpoint-of a form of construction for high riseflats, based essentially on ‘factory-made’ components, on the one hand quicker to build than more traditional forms of in situ reinforced concrete construction and, on the other, comparable in terms of cost and also structural behaviour if subjected to an abnormal load.

Elastic Composite Action in a Slab and Frame System

Elastic Composite Action in a Slab and Frame System

An earlier paper by Khan and Kemp considered the elastic composite action in a slab-beam system, in which the ends of the beams are resting on rigid columns. In this paper, the elastic composite action study is extended to include the flexural stiffness and the end conditions of the elastic columns. M.A. Khan
