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.

Building Control after the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

The changes which will be brought about by the 1974 Act and a possible alternative to existing systems of control operating in the United Kingdom are described in this paper. All town planning and financial controls affecting building are outside the scope of this paper. Technical requirements in Building Regulations or By-laws, will not be dealt with but the paper will concentrate on enforcement of Regulations affecting construction of buildings. In its territorial scope it will deal mainly with England and Wales with some reference to building control in Scotland. R.M. Silber

Inelastic Buckling of Steel Beams under Non Uniform Moment

Inelastic Buckling of Steel Beams under Non Uniform Moment

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.
