The following is the text of the ‘Toast to the Institution’ made by Lord Flowers, FRS, Rector of Imperial College, on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary Banquet at the Guildhall in the City of London on 1O May 1984.
President, My Lords, Your Munificence - I mean the Chairman of the University Grants Committee - Ladies and Gentlemen: We all like to celebrate anniversaries, and as many of them as possible, preferably all at once. If my calculations serve me well, I make out that this is the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Concrete Institute, the 62nd anniversary of its first calling itself The Institution of Structural Engineers, the 60th anniversary of the first publication of The Structural Engineer, and the 50th anniversary of the granting of the Royal Charter.

<h4>Masonry Fin Walls</h4>

Masonry Fin Walls

This paper describes one of the authors’ developments in ‘engineered’ masonry construction-the fin wall. The structural form of the fin wall is described and its development for use in tall, single-storey buildings detailed. Present uses, advantages, and potential future applications, are outlined, in particular the present and future use of the post-tensioned masonry fin. The theoretical and structural design considerations are discussed and the need for engineering research is highlighted. W.G. Curtin, G. Shaw, J.K. Beck and G.I. Parkinson

<h4>The Structural Engineer as an Expert Witness</h4>

The Structural Engineer as an Expert Witness

The consumer protection legislation of the past few years appears to have led to an increase in claims for redress for faulty building design or construction. No doubt, many of them are settled privately, but it appears that there is also an increase in litigation to deal with those cases where the differences cannot be resolved so easily. A.R. Mackay
