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.

Colloquium. Design Recommendations for Multistorey and Underground Carparks

In May 1973 the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Highway Engineers, now the Institution of Highways and Transportation, held a conference in London on the subject of multistorey and underground carparks, where the emphasis was on design. The information presented at this conference was clearly of considerable value, and the two Institutions therefore appointed a Joint Committee to prepare comprehensive recommendations on design, using the conference proceedings as a starting point. The Committtee moved very quickly and, in December 1975, the Joint Report was published by the Institution of Structural Engineers on behalf of the two Institutions. Raymond Sharp

Discussion on The Design and Construction of the New Ibrox Stadium by S. Thorburn and K.C.W. Van der

Prof. A. Bolton (F) (Heriot-Watt University): You have all seen slides of the appearance of the stands, but unless you have actually been seated there, I do not think you can fully appreciate the excellent quality from the spectator’s point of view. I was most impressed, not only by the finished effect but also by the great care that went into the design.
