Mr R. Stagg (M) (Building Design Partnership)
Most engineers who work on existing buildings have opinions on English Heritage. I have
mixed opinions myself but I have never, to my recollection, heard you talk about them. Would you care to comment?
An analytical procedure is presented for evaluating the punching shear strength Vu at the corner and edge column connections of post-tensioned concrete flat plates with and without spandrel beams. The effects of prestress are incorporated into the three equilibrium equations established for the bending and torsional moments and shear forces acting at the slab-column-spandrel connections. A fourth equation is derived which accounts for the interaction of bending, shear and torsion in the spandrel beam.
An explicit formula for Vu is obtained by condensing these four equations.

Where should the profession go?
Several members have written with diverse views on the role of the Institution and the
future of the profession. Mr T.E. Blackmore has drawn our attention to a survey carried
out by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and writes:
I find Verulam’s response to Graham Rollinson’s letter (19 March 1996) revealing, as it is based on what many have assumed to be the requirements of members. Other Institutions have started to canvas their members (and not just the activists) to actually meet the aspirations of their members.
