The Structural Engineer

So much has been said recently of the need for revision of the London Building Act,and so many criticisms have been made of it, that it seems reasonable to examine carefully the provisions of other building laws which are in force in other countries, and frequently form the basis for criticism of our own.

TE purpose of this paper is to discuss details and tendencies of current practice in the design and construction of bridges on the Federated Malay States Railways to allow of comparison with other countries where conditions are similar. It is suggested that a general exchange of summaries of this kind would tend to mitigate the existing unfortunate lack of liaison which causes engineers, even in neighbouring countries, to attack the same problems independently and, therefore, uneconomically.

It has become a recognised practice nowadays for a newly elected President to commence his duties by composing an address to be read at the first meeting of the session over which he presides, and certainly I have found this to be one of the most difficult tasks I have ever undertaken. In searching for a subject I was at once brought face to face with the extraordinarily wide field of activities in which the Structural Engineer works. I am, however, helped to some degree by the fact that we are to discuss later on this evening the draft of it specification for one of the newer materials which have come to the aid of the engineer in recent years, so I shall make my remarks as short as possible.
