Kerensky, CBE, Past-President, and by the Secretary at a series of meetings convened by the Department of the Environment representatlve of the construction industry professions. These meetings have been concerned with the preparation of a draft negotiating brief for HM Government representatives to work to in the discussions that are to take place in Brussels on-to use EEC parlance-'Draft Directives on the Right of Establishment in the Technical Sphere and on the Mutual Recognition of Qualifications'.
The paper outlines a possible approach to the problem of assessing the proneness to structural accidents of a given structure or class of structures. It seeks to distil from experience of past structural failures a number of significant parameters, by the assessment of which for a new structure its proneness to accidents could be broadly judged. A way of displaying and comparing such assessments, as by more than one engineer, is indicated.

The fundamental frequencies of idealized multi-storey frames are shown to depend on four non-dimensional parameters. The behaviour of tall frames is related to that of cantilevers of limited shear stiffness in terms of combinations of these parameters.
