This paper presents a method for obtaining measurements of non-linear characteristics in the damping of real structures. The use of the random decrement technique is presented and its application to some full-scale structures detailed. The mathematical background to the technique is detailed and the practical avoidance of problems with its use noted.

The London Ark stands on a triangular site defined by the A4 Hammersmith flyover and the adjacent underground cutting that carries the Piccadilly and District lines. In such a harsh environment the building was designed to take a defensive stance, forming an internal ‘oasis’ in the shape of a full-height atrium.

I am not sure whether I saw a particular reference in the paper to a question I should like to ask. We are talking about a system of construction that is of comparatively modem origin. How has the design of adhesives used in gluedlaminated construction kept pace with the growth of the magnitude of the structures that are now possible? Or is that particularly relevant?
