Checking building design John Smith (Verulam, 15 October 1996) seems to have struck a nerve. Many members have reacted, mostly agreeing with Dr Smith that details submitted for Building Regulations approval tend to be poor and frequently wholly inadequate. Mr B. Pearlstone, from Billericay, Essex, complains that one applicant asked the checking engineer how to go about the design of an unusual problem. He continues: What I find annoying is that a very large percentage of applicants’ calculations and drawings have no recognisable authorship, no preparer’s name, no signature, no check reference. Do they have PI insurance? Verulam

Steel Bridges Across 'The Pond': a Glimpse of North American Practice

Steel Bridges Across 'The Pond': a Glimpse of North American Practice

This paper describes some of the observations made by the author on a 12 000 mile round tour to the USA and Canada in October/November 1994 as a recipient of one of the two 1994 Rowen Travel Awards administered by the Educational Trust of the Institution of Structural Engineers. A large amount of information was gathered during visits to 20 organisations concerned with steel and composite bridges in the still pre-eminent steel-producing areas of the northeastern USA and Ontario. Various aspects of bridge engineering culture and practice in that region are described. J. Tubman
