Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd continues the discussion of the engineer's responsibilities in law and the significance of the Lord's decision in Anns' case in a lively and informative way. He writes : Why do engineers write passionately in emotive language about matters
which need to be thought out carefully, logically and unemotionally? A rhetorical question, perhaps, resulting from the consumption of wine and Verulam in unequal quantities but due in particular to the letter from Mr. Tietz on the subject of Anns' case (August 1977).

<h4>The Resistance of Brickwork to Lateral Loading. Part 2 Design of Walls to Resist Lateral Loads</h4>

The Resistance of Brickwork to Lateral Loading. Part 2 Design of Walls to Resist Lateral Loads

The need for experimental work in connection with lateral loading has been explained in Part 1. There is no less a need for a suitable design method based on experiment and, where possible, experience, that can be used in the limit state revision of CP lll . Part II discusses the possible design approaches that could make use of the data now available. B.A. Haseltine, H.W.H. West and J.N. Tutt

The Resistance of Brickwork to Lateral Loading. Part 1 Experimental Methods and Results of Tests on

Part l describes flexural tests on smallmasonry specimens and tests on full-sized walls, without preload, up to 5.5m long and 3.6m high, uniformly loaded laterally by means of air bags. Results for 6l different clay bricks and three mortars have enabled characteristic flexuralstrengths to be related to the water absorptions of the units. A few results for concrete block walls are also reported. H.W.H. West. H.R. Hodgkinson and B.A. Haseltine

<h4>Discussion on Engineering Aspects of the National Theatre by A.R. Flint and J.A. Neill</h4>

Discussion on Engineering Aspects of the National Theatre by A.R. Flint and J.A. Neill

Mr. Barron: The authors say that the terms of the contract should conveniently be those of a building contract which would be most appropriate for the much more costly superstructure. They actually used the RIBA conditions, more usually referred to as the JCT standard form. They could have also or alternatively used the ICE conditions modified for work with high architectural content. Did the JCT form prove to be as convenient as expected?
