Interview. Raising the Profile

As he recorded in his President’s message, the start of Professor Clark’s year in October 1998 was significant in that it saw the repayment of the Institution’s loan with Barclays Bank, successfully concluding the financial strategy that had been adopted since 1994. It was a turning point, allowing the Institution to move forward with a very positive strategy for the future. Prof Clark said: ‘It has not been easy, but the Institution has emerged stronger and more cohesive due to the unstinting support of the members and their response to the supplementary subscriptions’.

Correspondence on The Precast Concrete Bridge Beam: the First 50 Years

Mr K. G. Brunskill (M) I am surprised that the discussion contains no mention of Dr Paul Abeles who pioneered all the work on the inverted T-beam and whose beam and slab tests of the late 1940s and early 1950s were well recorded in The Structurul Engineer at the time.

A Theory of Structural Vulnerability

A Theory of Structural Vulnerability

A structure is vulnerable if any damage produces consequences that are disproportionate to that damage; conversely, a structure is robust if it can withstand arbitrary damage. The purpose of this paper is to present a new theory of structural vulnerability. It is a theory of structural form and connectivity, the purpose of which is to identify the ‘weak links’ within a structure. It is not a theory of the response of a structure to loads. Z. Lu, Y. Yu. N.J. Woodman and Professor D.I. Blockley
