PART I. PRELIMINARY. The Author, some time ago, in connection with some work requiring rich concrete, wanted definite experimental results as to how the properties of concrete were affected by varying the cement contents, and could find only isolated and unrelated tests, which moreover, agreed but poorly with one another.

PART VI. Prior to 1771, engineers who did not know each other very well often met accidentally in the Houses of Parliament and in the Courts of Justice, and frequently each stoutly maintained the superiority of his own opinions; and heated technical arguments were put forward for non-technical politicians to adjudicate upon. It was suggested to Smeaton that such a state of the profession was undesirable, and that it would be well if occasional meetings could be arranged where Civil Engineers might shake hands, and become personally acquainted, so that in this way, and by a friendly interchange of opinions on controversial subjects, and by a comparison of experiences, it might be possible to eliminate erroneous ideas and conduct their business “without jostling one another with rudeness, too common in the unworthy part of the advocates of the law, whose interest it might be to push them on, perhaps too far, in discussing points in contest.” E.

The Theory of Flexural Resistance

The Theory of Flexural Resistance

I should like to say a word with regard to Lhe origin of this paper. The paper which was read by Mr. H. Kempton Dyson some time ago acted as a thought stimulant, and started me pondering on flexural stress. The next incentive was the inauguration of the Lancashire & Cheshire Branch, and, being elected Chairman, circumstances willed me to prepare the first paper. This paper was written under very keen pressure, but, I have thought a good deal over it since, and, as a result, I commend it to your consideration. I hope you will set aside, for an hour or two at any rate, orthodox opinions, and treat this matter with a philosophical mind. I recognise that it is a serious thing to challenge a theory which is generations old, but, at the same time, I feel confident that there is supplementary resistance that we are not fully cognisant of.
