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. I.A. MacLeod and H. Hosny

Continuing Education: Learning Needs and Learning Styles

Continuing Education: Learning Needs and Learning Styles

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?'

Correspondence on Design of Reinforced Concrete Sections Subjected to Membrane Forces by N.K. Subedi

Note: (i) All the notation used is as in the original paper, the only difference being that stresses denoted by ó are not necessarily horizontal or vertical but are along a set of axes which are mutually orthogonal. (ii) Equation numbers (1) to (6) refer to the original paper. R. Jategaonkar

Lessons to be Learned from Construction Industry Insurance Claims

Lessons to be Learned from Construction Industry Insurance Claims

This paper covers the principles of claims, the role of insurers and of insurance brokers, the responsibilities of adjusters and the duties of the parties: it also shows how, from the point of view of the insurer, greater efficiency can be achieved in the construction process by proper attention to the duties of the client and his professional advisers on the one hand and the contractor on the other.
