We have a request from Mr. K. T. John (M) written from Nairobi : I am currently engaged in the design of several large reservoirs for water schemes in various parts of Africa. Economy and ease of construction is extremely important as many of the sites are in remote areas and the labour is relatively unskilled. Verulam

Discussion on The Technician Engineer in the Structural Design Office by Kenneth Severn and K.C. Whi

Discussion on The Technician Engineer in the Structural Design Office by Kenneth Severn and K.C. Whi

Mr. H.B. Gould (F) : Mr. President, we have heard an introduction to a very interesting paper. It occurs to me that in saying that the Institution would not wish to block the entrance of technicians into the professional side, Mr. Severn describes a position that the people concerned may not agree with. I am thinking here of people who, for example, were left outside in the cold when the regulations changed in 1973-people who were quite near to qualification. They may, for example, have taken and failed the Institution's final examination. They found then that to achieve chartered status it was necessary for them to start at university or polytechnics without any credit for the work they had done at the technician stage.

Correspondence on The Static Penetration Test and the Ultimate Resistances of Driven Piles in Fine-g

Correspondence on The Static Penetration Test and the Ultimate Resistances of Driven Piles in Fine-g

Any paper which encourages the adoption of better methods in routine site investigations is to be welcomed, and Mr. Thorburn should be congratulated for drawing attention to the use of the static penetration test in the design of driven piles. J. Billam

Teaching Towards an Improved Understanding of Structural Behaviour

Teaching Towards an Improved Understanding of Structural Behaviour

An investigation of the ability of civil engineering students to understand the basic behaviour of structures is described. The study is based on two tests, each consisting of a number of two-dimensional structures. The candidate is required to draw the approximate bending moment diagrams. The results of tests on a number of student groups are presented and discussed. Based on these results, the authors conclude that the ability of the average student is less than should be expected.
