Mr. K. Kretsis (F) : I would like to ask a question with regard to tube combination by internal sub-division. The horizontal beam members of the external tube sides have a considerable stiffness, how is a comparable stiffness achieved in the horizontal beam members of the internal sub-divisions of the tubes so that they may have a substantial effect on the shear lag within the external cross-planes of the tubes?
For nearly thirty years, including seven years of war-time, I had no contact with the Institution headquarters except by post and through reading-or trying to read-the journal. In early days I knew only one name: Major Maitland, and I wondered but never understood what went on at 'headquarters'. How did 'they' decide whether or not I was to achieve my ambition to become a fully-fledged structural engineer? One realized that Major Maitland did not do all the work himself and that even given a President, elected yearly, the two of them must have a large body of assistance, both from the members themselves and from some sort of secretariat, to handle all the business-not fully understood by me of a major professional institution.

The history of the Fort Regent from its origins to the present day are first described followed by the requirements of the States of Jersey and the evolution of the design now under construction. The engineering problems encountered and the derivation of design loadings together with the solutions to these problems and the design logic employed are discussed. The various structural elements that form the complete roof structure, such as the curved roof beams, fascia girders, portal frames, and the north and south ends and the dome, are fully described together with the design procedure for the structural elements and the methods of shop and site fabrication.
