Akroyd, MScTech, LLB(Hons), CEng, FIStructE, Member of the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, Barrister, is unique in the sense of being the first lawyer-and a barrister to boot-to be President of the Institution. He is, by education and training, an engineer and a lawyer and, by occupation, a consulting engineer and farmer.

The paper compares the economics of various seyice reservoir designs and deals with the technical and financial advantages of the simply supported wall over the more conventional cantilever or propped cantilever solution. Rectangular reservoirs with capacities up to 31 800 m3 and circular tanks to 4500 m3 are included in the exercise. J. Walmsley
BS 5502 covers the design of buildings and structures for use by the agricultural industry. It replaces BS 2053, first published in 1953, which recognised that the consequences of collapse of a farm building were not as serious as those from the collapse of an industrial building. G.M. Rose and R.S. Burbage
