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. Oscar Faber
The following article is the outcome of an argument in which the writer contended, (and subsequentlv proved by experiment) that, with less than half-an-hour’s explanation, he could get boys of fourteen to draw, as quickly as experts, bending moment diagrams for beams subject to moving to centrated loads. An engineer’s time should be too valuable for such work, which should come within the province of the ofice boy. W.G. Sheppard
The evidence which has been given before the Royal Commission on London Government by representatives of the Metropolitan Borough Councils and by the Metropolitan Boroughs Standing Joint Committee, is of more than passing interest to the Engineer and Architect engaged in practice in the London area, and it should be carefully watched, in order that the present system, dealing with the control of the erection or alteration of buildings, is not made more dificult or confusing.
