Griffiths, Edgar A
Sir,-with reference to Mr. Drury’s paper of the January issue of the Journal, I cannot
see on what basis Mr. Drury assumes 7 1/2 tons per sq. in. as total available stresses in a pillar which has a direct stress and bending stresses.
The PRESIDENT proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Drury for his paper and for the very great care with which he had prepared it.
The PRESIDENT, in introducing Mr. Tapsell, said that his paper was an extremely interesting one on rather a new subject which the author had been investigating at the National Physical Laboratory. He was very sorry, and apologised to Mr. Tapsell that so few members had turned up that evening, but the possibility was that, this being such a new subject, they had not realised its importance even in the everyday use of metals.
