Mr. J. A. Baird has written in amplification of his earlier letter which appeared in this column in September 1975: Somehow my edited contribution on training and engineer's failures has been misunderstood (The Structural Engineer, Vol. 53, No. 9, p. 400). Mistakes are being made and of course they have to be investigated, preferably by someone experienced, perhaps even specializing full time in such work. However, my communication was to draw attention to the appointment made necessary because we, as a profession, are making sufficient errors for a fulltime inspector to be required, and to ask if we are satisfied with current training which has led to this situation.

Correspondence (1) on Reinforced Concrete Beams Subjected to a Sustained Torque by C.D. Goode

Dr. Goode's paper gives some very interesting data on long-term torsional effects in reinforced concrete and particularly illustrates how 'torsion shedding' can occur in continuous structures. The comparison of strengths with those calculated from CP110 raises two points. Dr. R.A. Swann

Building Regulations - the Role of the Structural Engineer

It must be appreciated that Building Regulations are part of a legal code, and the Public Health Act of 1936 augmented by the Public Health Act of 1961 contain the enabling and enforcing powers, scope and requirements as to approvals or rejections of proposals. F.D. Entwisle

Discussion on the Design of the Channel Tunnel by H.B. Gould, G.O. Jackson and S.G. Tough

Mr. A. M. Muir Wood (Sir William Halcrow B Partners): I think I am possibly the only one here who has been concerned with each stage of this project from its rebirth, as it were, in 1959 until the date of its suspended animation in 1975. While I have been concerned with it on and off-mostly off-nevertheless, I have seen a number of changes and constant evolution.
