Most structural engineers will have been familiar with CP111 Structural recommendations for loadbearing walls, first published in 1948, revised in 1964, and metricated in 1970. The Code was amended from time to time but was lacking in guidance in several important areas, e.g. the lateral strength of walls and accidental loading. It contained a very short section on reinforced brickwork walls which was not sufficient to enable the material to be used in an economical way. The workmanship, nonstructural design, and some materials aspects of masonry, were dealt with in CP121 Code of practice for walling: Part l: Brick and block masonry, published in 1951 and revised in 1973.

Verulam

Undergraduate training The May issue of The Structural Engineer contained a paper ‘An undergraduate training project-construction of a reinforced concrete grandstand’ by Mr R. Hulse, Mr M. K. Hurst, and Professor W. H. Mosley, of the Nanyang Technological Institute in Singapore. It described a practical project for second year students which was aimed at providing them with a background to their studies of design and construction through involvement in building a fullscale grandstand in rein forced concrete. The authors have now written to say that they have received a considerable number of interested comments on the project. They also wish to clarify their involvement in the exercise and give credit to all those concerned. Their letter reads: Since publication of our paper, considerable interest has been shown regarding the origins of the innovative educational concepts and training techniques that led to the construction project described.

<h4>The Institution's Role</h4>

The Institution's Role

I do not propose to go over the history of the Institution’s involvement with structural Codes-I briefly summarised this in my paper ‘Codes and standards in design and in regulation’ presented at the Institution’s Anniversary Conference in 1984. The Institution has been actively considering its present and future role, and efforts are being made to act on the conclusions that have been arrived at. Professor M.R. Horne
