The President will represent the Institution at the CEI's 10th Anniversary Banquet at
The Guildhall, London, on Tuesday 10 February. Mr. Mason will travel to Manchester to attend the Annual Dinner of the Lancashire and Cheshire Branch on Friday 20 February, and with Mrs. Mason he looks forward to meeting members and their ladies of the Northern Counties Branch at the Branch Annual Dinner in Newcastle on Tyne on Friday 27 February. The following week the President and Mrs. Mason travel to Bedford on Friday 5 March to attend the Annual Dinner and Dance of the Bedfordshire and adjoining Counties Section.
This article was initiated by Richard Gardner, Director of the York Centre, who comments as follows: 'Mrs. Hedge has just completed a report' on a two-year research project into continuing education. Her study concentrated mainly but not exclusively on the needs and problems of architects. But it has also brought her into direct contact with other professions and with organizations such as BRE whose work is relevant to us all. Different professions and different kinds of practice/office/firms surely have different needs. But do the conclusions drawn by Mrs. Hedge and the suggestions she is making here have a kind of universal importance for all the building professions? And is the York Centre right to see them as pointers towards a new, more complete and more flexible provision of multi-disciplinary continuing education; and also as demonstrating fairly conclusively what its own role and programme of work should be?'
This paper is concerned with the way in which vertical load is distributed in shear wall buildings. It deals in the main with tall buildings (height to width greater than l.5:1), but some of the conclusions reached may have applicability to other types of wall construction.
