The paper describes lateral loading tests carried out on six full sized single-leaf blockwork walls. The walls were in three sets, one of each set having its vertical edges simply supported and the other having continuity over its vertical edges. Two different block thicknesses were used. The tops of all the walls were unrestrained. C. Anderson

A Look at North American Practice in the Use of Corrugated Sheeting

In celebration of their Golden Jubilee in 1972173 members of the Lancashire and Cheshire Branch of the Institution generously endowed a Golden Jubilee Scholarship Fund. Grants amounting to some £400 are available every other year and offered to the member of the Branch who in the opinion of the Branch Committee can best make use of it for a study visit overseas to extend his skills as a structural engineer. The first scholarship in 1973 was awarded to Mr John Saunders who applied it to a study tour of Europe and reported upon his investigations into the structural use of asbestos cement.

Correspondence (1) on Remedial Works to Cracked Reinforced Concrete Deep Beams by S. Mackey and T.K.

The authors have provided some interesting data on a serviceability failure of deep beams which should prove invaluable to research workers and Code Committees concerned with this difficult problem. It would, however, increase the value ofthe paper if rather fuller details of the reinforcement of the beams could be provided so that shortcomings in the design could be properly assessed.
