We undertook in January to publish in our next issue a statement from the Librarian about the new classification system which has been introduced in the library and apologise that it is two issues later than was promised. However, here it now is :
Since 1965 'catalogue entry slips' have been published at the back of each issue of the Journal, giving a single entry for each paper published. A UDC (Universal Decimal
Classification) number has been assigned to each paper since that time (printed above the title of each paper in the text and on each 'slip').
Report of the Council
When Dr. W. Eastwood, BEng, PhD, CEng, FIStructE, FICE gave his Presidential Address in October 1976, it was the fourth time in the history of the Institution that a member from Yorkshire had been installed as President. After a distinguished academic career leading to six years as Professor of Civil and Structural Engineering at Sheffield University, Dr. Eastwood in 1970 resigned that appointment to embark upon a second career as a consulting engineer.
The development of dead load stresses in the columns of an eight-storey reinforced concrete structure during construction is reported. The in-situ steel and concrete stresses were measured respectively through acoustic gauges and a Carlson stress meter. Typical data on the development of steel strains are presented. The difficulties of interpreting the concrete stress meter readings are described. The influence of the construction process on the development of concrete stresses is shown.
