The subject of this paper is of great current interest to bridge
engineers and I should like to add a few comments.
The problems of interaction between manmade structures and the ground which nature provides to support them are always with us; we were glad that the Institution's Symposium in May to launch its excellent state-of-the-art report was so well attended. Discussion was lively and interesting; Sam Thorburn and his committee are to be commended for producing a stimulating and useful study.
Prof. A. J. Harris, CBE, BSc(Eng), CEng, FIStructE, FlCE succeeds Mr. Peter Dunican as President of the Institution 1978-79 on 5 October next and, at an Ordinary Meeting at 6 pm that evening, will give his Presidential Address , 'Intellectual standing of engineering'.
