A course consisting of three lectures per week in physical, inorganic and organic chemistry with laboratory work throughout the year.

5у.s.wвus. (i) Physical Chemistry. Molecular theory, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, surface chemistry, molecular structure, electrolysis, catalysts.

(ii) Inorganic Chemistry. Complex formation, structural inorganic chemistry, the metallic state and intermetallic compounds, . chemical reactions of solids, radiochemistry, fluorine chemistry.

(iii) Organic Chemistry. Selected topics.

(iv) Laboratory Work. A minimum of 12 hours per week, dealing with quanti- tative and qualitative analysis, inorganic and organic, preparation of pure sub- stances, physico-chemical measurements.

The apparatus used in the course is supplied by the Chemistry Department;


deposit must be paid and evidence of payment must be produced before practical

classes begin. .

Students are required to provide themselves with an approved box of analytical weights. - _

Instruction will be given in the methods for systematic consultation of chemical literature and students will make


study of the original literature on selected topics.

(Professor Francis, Dr. Trollope, Dr. Laszlo, Mr. Woad, Dr. Lawson, Mr. Sharp, Dr. Moody, Mr. Lee, Dr. Stevens, Mr. Aroni and visiting lecturers:) A course of about 8 lectures per week, with about 14 hours per week of laboratory, drawing 0111cc and practice classes throughout the year.

SYLLABUS. (i) Structural Engineering and Elasticity. Analysis and design of statically indeterminate structures such as trusses, rigid frames, arches and shells. Inelastic behaviour.

Concrete mix design. Reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.

Stability of structures and components. Vibrations of beams, frames and the like. Elementary plate and shell theory.

Laboratory techniques—measurement of strain, methods of testing structures and statistical design of experiments.

(ii) Hydraulic Engineering. Topics such as the following:

Rainfall : Distribution, intensity, run-off, evaporation, percolation. Waterway for bridges and culverts.

Rivers : Flood prevention, improvement and regulation.

Storage Reservoirs : Determination of capacity ; earthen, masonry, concrete and other dams ; outlet works, waste weirs ; preservation of catchments.

Conduits: Channels, flumes, pipe lines. Variable flow in channels. Waves.

Water Supply: Purification of water. Reticulation. Service reservoirs, water towers, stand pipes.

Sewerage and Drainage: Sewerage of towns and isolated buildings, drainage, separate and combined systems, sewage treatment, disposal of wastes, pumping stations.

Irrigation: Conditions suitable, duty of water, methods of application to land barrages, head-works, regulators, distribution systems.

Hydro-electric Engineering : Turbine characteristics; settings ; choice of type of turbine; speed regulation; surge tanks ; water power schemes.

Pumping Plants. Hydraulic models.

(iii) Soil Engineering. Behaviour of engineering soils. Principles and applications of soil mechanics to foundations, embankments, cuttings and re- taining structures.

(iv) Highway and Airport Engineering. Geometric design of roads, streets and airports. Pavement design and construction. Drainage. Intro- duction to traffic engineering.

(v) Engineering Practices. (a) Engineering Construction. Topics such as the following : foundation methods, timbering, de-watering, under-pinning, etc. Structural steel fabrication. Methods of reinforced concrete construction. form


work, precasting. Erection methods.

(b) Engineering Organization and Economics. Topics such as the following: organization of civil engineering works, contracts and specifications, financing of engineering projects, costing, legal aspects.

Laboratory, Drawing Ofгce and Classroom Work. This will usually include the following : (i) original designs of structures in part or whole;

No student will be admitted to the Final Examination without evidence of satisfactory laboratory and drawing office work, which will be assessed in the de- ciding of examination results. Records of laboratory and drawing office work must be submitted periodically as required. Additional tests may be set during the year;

the results of these will be taken into account in assessing examination results.
