The Presidential party arrived in Vancouver on Monday 31 August 1981 to be welcomed by Dr. Steve Faliszewski (F), Institution Representative in British Columbia. The following morning, Professor Horne and the Secretary visited the Civil Engineering Department of the University of British Columbia and were entertained at lunch by the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences in the enviable Faculty Club overlooking the Frazer River. Later in the day Dr. Faliszewski arranged a dinner party at Grouse Mountain Lodge-a skyride above Vancouver Island. Professor and Mrs Horne met numbers of members, some of whom had travelled considerable distances, including Mr and Mrs David Bevan, Mr and Mrs Roy Metcalf, and Mr and Mrs David York.

Dr. D. Tordoff (BCSA): We are all conscious of the fact that changes are taking place in design specifications and I should like to ask Mr Needham to comment on the changing philosophy of connection design with the introduction of limit state principles. Will a different design approach be required, and is there any research needed, or being undertaken currently, for a new design approach?

A Commentary on Portal Frame Design

A Commentary on Portal Frame Design

Though the steel portal frame is one of the simplest structural arrangements for covering a given area, the designer probably has to satisfy at least as many different structural criteria as for more complex structures. Present-day design of portal frames is reviewed in the light of recent research studies into certain aspects of the behaviour of portal frames, particularly the problem of stability of haunched rafters. Guidance is given for checking the lateral stability of such members. L.J. Morris

When a house or some other form of property changes hands, the buyer usually commissions a survey of it; or, if a mortgage is negotiated, the Building Society will give instructions for a surveyor to establish value. Whoever undertakes a survey is legally responsible for what is said in the report to the client.
