The paper sets out the background to the introduction of high alumina cement to the manufacture of precast, prestressed concrete components in the United Kingdom and outlines the successive recommendations made for its use. It summarises experience gained from the structural appraisals following the collapse of the roof over the school swimming pool at Stepney and relates the site findings to the results of laboratory research. It suggests that there is no case for the reintroduction of high alumina cement for precast, prestressed concrete but that its use in its original function for concrete to resist seawater and ground waters might be reexamined.

Presidential Address. We, the Academics-What are We Good For?

You have done me the great honour of electing me as your President-I thank the members of the Institution and undertake to do my best to justify your confidence. Judging from their remarks on taking office, my own sense of humility and feeling of some inadequacy has been common in my predecessors, and it is this realisation, together with my personal experience of the help and friendship that I have received within the Institution, that emboldens me to step into the Presidency with a pleasurable anticipation of its challenges and opportunities. Professor M.R. Horne

Earthquake forces Mr R. J. Pugh seems to reach the same conclusions as Mr R. Farnborough (October 1980) on this subject. He writes: With reference to the letter (June 1980) of Messrs Coverman and Clarke on the subject of earthquake loadings I think that many engineers will agree with Verulam's comment at the end of the letter - namely, that other countries have their own requirements.
