Sir,-With reference to Mr. C. G. Lynam’s letter in your April issue, I have had some small experience of the application of metal facings to concrete by both the methods suggested by Mr. Lynam.
Mr. W. T. HALCROW, who described the sea wall dealt with in the paper as a most interesting piece of work, said he had not known until recently that the work was carried out by Major Du-Plat-Taylor, although he was an old friend. One thing he had learned from the paper was the method evolved by the contractors to drive the sheet piling so that it would not creep and stand over at the top. He intended to remember that method, and if he ever came up against a similar problem he would try it. He expressed indebtedness to the author for the paper.
DURING the discussion of the paper on “The Effect of Existing Regulations on Pillar Design in Steel-framed Buildings,” the writer promised to give particulars of some
tests which were made at the L.C.C. School of Building on the side-buckling of a steel beam. These particulars and results should have appeared in The Structural Engineer for April, but owing to illness, the writer was unable to prepare them.
