IN the address which I have the honour to deliver to you this evening, I propose to bring to your notice some of the more salient points relating to the state of oscillation set up in railway bridges by the passage of locomotives or other moving loads.
Professor C.E. Inglis
Sir,-During the last few weeks several enquirers have requested a reconciliation of Clauses 12 and 14 of the Code of Practice approved by the London County Council on
February 16th, 1932.
WELDED construction is rapidly increasing in popularity throughout the whole world. In Australia and New Zealand it has become a very important branch of Structural Engineering, and in the United States of America it is said to be the eighth industry
in order of importance; Germany has a very comprehensive building code applied to welded construction and, in that country, Structural Engineers are building more and more by means of welding. In the writer's opinion, Italy has up to the present time, tackled the most spectscular structural efforts in Europe in so far as welded construction is concerned: buildings of 13 storeys are being erected in Italy and such buildings are about twice the height allowed by the London Building Authorities for buildings in London. America, however, can easily beat the Italian record with sky-scrapers of 18 and 19 storeys and each containing miles of welded joints.
