The Institution's Special Study Group on the History of Structural Engineering intends to promote short articles on subjects of historical interest for publication in The Structural Engineer as a fairly regular feature. R.J.M. Sutherland
The influence of the conditions of loading and lateral support on the inelastic lateral buckling of rolled steel beams is studied using a finite element approach. The numerical results obtained are subsequently used to assess the accuracy of simplified methods of allowing for these factors. Changes in the form of the applied loading are found to affect the critical moment much less in the inelastic range than in the elastic range and it is therefore suggested that the use of an effective length approach provides the most appropriate method of dealing with such factors.

In December 1972 the Secretary of State for the Environment asked Sir Robert Matthew, Past-President of the RIBA and Mr. Patrick Skillington of DOE to study and report upon a possible means of promoting high standards of design in government building. Their far-reaching two-part report was completed in July 1974 and the Institution, together with other professional societies in the construction industry, was invited to comment.
