THERE is at the moment considerable controversy contrasting the relative merits of fire-resisting and timber floors, especially as applied to the ordinary dwelling house. In our present state of financial stringency the question of cost is naturally a very important factor in the discussion, and it is proposed to make the relative cost of timber and fireresisting floors the essential feature in this article.

Reinforced Concrete Railway Viaducts Near Belfast

The Northern Counties Committee of the London Midland and Scottish Railway has been severely handicapped by the fact that all main line trains have to reverse at Greenisland, 69 miles from Belfast, the main line terminus. This involves delay to trains together with added expense owing to the necessity of providing additional staff and facilities. It was decided to construct a loop or avoiding line 26 miles long, whereby trains could run straight through, thus effecting substantial economies and providing a.n accelerated service to the north and Portrush, which latter place is a popular seaside resort. This work has been carried out in collaboration with the Government of Northern Ireland as an unemployment relief scheme. R.L. M'Ilmoyle

Developments in the Use of Steel in Floor Constructions

THE floors of multi-storeyed framed buildings represent 6 per cent. to 10 per cent. of the total cost of the structure, ignoring encasing of the main framework, and recently more attention is being given to endeavours to reduce this cost without reducing the resistance to fire or increasing the transmission of sound.
