The term 'permissible stress' used in CP 1 14 describes a number that is defined by that Code and that, when used in formulae specified therein, defines a limit to the recommended service load for the element under consideration. It does not purport to correspond to the actual stress expected to occur in the element when subjected to the deduced value of service load, and any detailed consideration of the means by which this number was selected should show that it cannot be expected to do so in a material as complex as reinforced concrete.

Discussion on Redevelopment of Queen Anne's Mansions by G. K. Montgomery-Smith

Discussion on Redevelopment of Queen Anne's Mansions by G. K. Montgomery-Smith

Mr. D. R. R. Dick (Past President): In 1940, when the Ministry of Works requisitioned Queen Anne's Mansions for the Admiralty, I was the structural engineer heading up the team resgonsible for maintenance in Central London. The maintenance surveyor asked me to go along there and give some guidance as to their structural soundness. I was therefore responsible for the figures that you quoted concerning floor loads and strengths-but I did not do them in kilonewtons!

A compliment and a complaint Mr. J. N. Barber has this to say about the journal and about certain observations in the Annual Report (April 1979): As an outsider who is nevertheless fortunate enough to see The Structural Engineer regularly, may I assure you that the present format and content of your journal is far superior to the fare served up in other places.

A Postscript to Anns v. Herton

A Postscript to Anns v. Herton

The following note has been prepared by Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd, MScTech, LLB(Hons), CEng, FIStructE. MICE (Vice-President), who appeared as an expert witness for the London Borough of Merton when the claim was heard for damages and consequential loss arising from subsidence damage at the block of flats in South West London. In the event, as readers may recall, the parties settled the case out of Court. Mr. Akroyd's review emphasises again the responsibilities of the chartered structural engineer. They have always been onerous; recent cases have neither added to nor subtracted from them.
