A method is presented for dividing an open cross-section into components. Computer analyses have been undertaken to determine the effects of the junctions between components, which are significant in many sections. The results of these analyses are presented in the form of charts, which can be used in design offices to find equivalent sections whose inertia can be calculated by simple formulae. No computer analysis is needed by users of the charts.

<h4>Financing the Institution - our Subscriptions</h4>

Financing the Institution - our Subscriptions

Over the last 2 or 3 years, there has been much debate, at both grassroots and headquarters level, about the finances of the Institution. I believe that a very simple personal exposition of the philosophy of how one should finance a learned society might be worth a little consideration. B.P. Clancy

<h4>Engineering Aspects of the UK Pavilion, Expo '92, Seville</h4>

Engineering Aspects of the UK Pavilion, Expo '92, Seville

The UK pavilion exemplifies those buildings in which architecture and engineering are inseparable. The harsh summer climate of Seville was moderated by borrowing traditional methods, adapted by taking advantage of modern materials and technology to serve contemporary user-needs. Prefabrication of the building fabric and major plant items, as well as its visually expressed steel structure, was fundamental to the ‘kit-of-parts’ approach adopted. I Gardner, D. Hadden, M.
