Sir,-The difficulties which certain engineers seem to be encountering in the proper interpretation of clauses mentioned by Mr. Cocking in his letter published in the November issue do not seem to be insuperable, if, indeed, they do exist.

The Design of Welded Strucutures. Discussion on Mr. Helsby's Paper

Major JAMES CALDWELL (Member) (who was the author of the first paper presented to the Institution on the subject of welding) proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Helsby, and congratulated him upon his paper, which had been prepared and published with a view to showing people in this country and overseas what could be done in the way of welded construction.

Congress on Bridge and Structural Engineering

Congress on Bridge and Structural Engineering

AS I have the honour to be the British Vice- President of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering, and as I attended the first Congress of the Association, held in Paris from 19th May to 25th May, as leader of the Official Delegates appointed by His Majesty’s Government, I thought it might be of some interest to the members of the Scottish Branch of the Institution if I gave a brief account of the work of the Congress and of my impressions of how far the Association is carrying out the work for which it was instituted.

Ferro-Concrete Sections

Ferro-Concrete Sections

On pages 532 and 533 we publish a chart of Ferro-Concrete Sections, by Mr. A. D. Turner, which shows in a compact form the principles of calculation of all ordinary ferro-concrete members, including the complexities of bending plus compression. A point in connection with this contribution is that in case VI, the author appears to ignore the movement of the neutral axis which takes place when steel is introduced for taking compression stresses. This is done in other authoritative methods of calculation, and the error introduced in most cases is small and may be ignored without substantial error. It should be noted, however, that in special cases it might require further investigation.
