Mr Lee: It will be seen that our paper comprises two parts, the first on design and the second on construction. My co-author for Part 2, Mr Al-Bayah, was very much looking forward to being here in person as one of the representatives of the client and to participating in the discussion. Unfortunately pressure of work in Iraq has not permitted him to come to London at this time. He has asked me to express his regrets and to pass on the good wishes of himself and his colleagues in the Government of Iraq who were concerned with the bridge for an interesting evening of technical discussion.
The papers and a summary of the discussion of the 1984 IABSE Henderson colloquium on liability will be printed and available for purchase shortly. However, to present the major conclusions and problems identified in this IABSE colloquium to a much wider spectrum of professionals within the construction industry, for the purpose of delineating positive steps for reform, a 1-day symposium will be held jointly by the Institution of Structural Engineers and the International Association for Bridge & Structural Engineering on 29 May 1985, further details of which will be published shortly. In the meantime, Alec Sandberg summarises the main points discussed, conclusions reached, and problems identified. A.C.E. Sandberg
Buckling is usually associated with slender structures of stiff materials, such as steel and aluminium. This paper aim to show that it occurs, also, in foundation engineering and soil mechanics. Foundations and soil samples of relatively robust dimensions can be vulnerable to buckling when deformations are large, i.e. when the stiffness of the soil is low. E.C. Hambly
