The President and Mrs. Eastwood Will receive some 700 members and their guests at the Institution's Annual Dinner at Grosvenor House, London on Thursday, 5 May, among them Sir Charles Villiers, MC, Chairman, British Steel Corporation and Sir Roy Marshall, CBE, Secretary-General of the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and Principals, with their ladies. Sir Charles will be proposing a toast to the Institution, to which the President is to reply; Sir Roy will respond to the toast to 'The Guests' proposed by Mr. Peter Dunican, CBE (President-Elect).
The term 'stress-ribbon' describes a structure type in which the deck hangs in catenary form. The behaviour and design of an all-steel structure of this type is discussed using a 490m span highway bridge as an example.
