The Research Strategy Committee recently reported to the Building EDC and its report, A strategy for construction R&D published in December 1985, sets out recommendations for future requirements of the construction industry in the United Kingdom. This report has major implications for structural engineers and deserves close scrutiny, comment and support, to make research & development appropriate to the needs of the industry in the next 20 years.
