This paper addresses the finite element modelling of the dynamic characteristics of modern tall buildings of complex structural forms and compares the results obtained with those of full-scale testings. In order to facilitate reasonable finite element modellings, a computer program capable of treating large-scale tall building structures was developed. J.M. Ko, S.L. Lau and C.W. Wong
The Members’ Conference We have received only two responses to Mr D. J. Pearce ’s letter (17 October) which was concerned primarily with the question of conference fees, and both of these come from members living away from the U.K. Is there, indeed, as Brian Clancy commented, so little interest from our members in seeking to discuss Institution affairs? Donald Gudgeon lives in Perth, Australia: Three cheers for Mr Pearce’s letter. I have already written some time ago to IEAust on the waste of conferences for conferences’ sake. Verulam
For many years, we have been used to many energy campaigns (switch it off, conserve it, etc.) and, as a result, both legislation and the balance sheet have encouraged the design of energy efficient buildings. Indeed, this has developed much ingenuity in design concepts, a use of a wider range of materials with particular reference to their thermal efficiency, and (perhaps more important) a better and more fundamental understanding of the factors which may improve energy efficient design, i.e. the passive use of solar energy, etc. Ron Marsh
