The Structural Engineer

Mr A.N. Beal (M) (R.H. Thomason & Partners): This paper is interesting, but it seems that work is still at an early stage and any notions of likely conclusions are a little premature.

In the present work, a new type of retaining wall is proposed, in which the wall is tied to the base by two parallel inclined ties. To study the structural behaviour of the tied-back retaining wall, the finite element method is used. A computer program is written in FORTRAN IV for the solution of the problem. Professor F.A.N. Alshawi, A.I. Mohammed and B.J. Farid

To have been asked to write a personal tribute to Sir Ove Arup is a task I have accepted with sadness, because it is required, but with pride because it provides me with an opportunity to remember with affection the effect that knowing him has had on me. What follows is therefore a very personal retrospective of a man I greatly admired and respected. Peter Campbell

Lengths of ties in cavity walls In December Mr J. B. Olorenshaw aired difficulties over the satisfactory use of ties, including the problem of ensuring adequate lengths of embedment. We are grateful to Dr. C. Anderson who now brings to our notice the relevant guidance from BSI: Mr Olorenshaw raises some important practical issues, but I am very concerned that he, and presumably you, are not aware that a BSI committee recently applied itself to producing a replacement for BS 1243 in the form of a performance standard. At the end of 1986 BSI published DD 140: Part l which deals with test methods for wall ties for masonry/masonry and masonry/timber construction and, early in 1987, Part 2 which deals with the use of wall ties.
