Vibrations in buildings
Dr. A. W. Irwin of Heriot- Watt University, in his capacity as Chairman of the British Standards Panel that deals with ‘Human exposure to vibration and shock in buildings’, has written to us expressing his interest in the Building Research Establishment Digest No. 278, circulated with The Structural Engineer for October 1983. His letter reads: While I am glad to see that the BRE is taking an interest in the subject of vibration with the issue of the Digest entitled ‘Vibrations: buildings and human response’, I am rather doubtful about the value of this document and wonder whether it is not misleading in some regards.
The successful recovery of the Mary Rose has been described as the maritime event of the century. The consulting engineers, R. J. Crocker & Partners, were responsible for the design concept of the method of recovery, design of the cradle, underwater lifting frame, and the method of suspending the hull of the Mary Rose from the lifting frame.
R.J. Crocker and J.S. Grace
Mr Graham Baker (Heriot-Watt University): The authors have presented a simple and readable physical proof of this fundamentally important principle and have drawn attention to particular areas of student misunderstanding.
