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.
To the structural engineer the question of heat insulation is usually one of secondary importance, but to the designer of a cold stores or a precooling plant it is a major problem, for the insulation is the most important element he has to consider. Ezer Griffiths
