If the banks of a ravine appear to be solid and careful investigation has revealed no indication of slipping at any point above, below, or near the proposed location of the bridge the rock bed which is to sustain the thrust from the structure must be drilled and carefully examined its to its nature, strength and depth. If the results are satisfactory the designer can proceed with details to determine the type of structure which should be selected only after a minute analysis of the data obtained. H.E. Brooke-Bradley

THE following paper is based upon experience which the author has gained with Messrs. L. G. Mouchel & Partners, Ltd., in the design of a large number of statically indeterminate structures, and he has endeavoured to bring out some new methods of presentation. Ernest Cecil Smith

Foundations

THE design of foundations is a matter of increasing importance for two reasons, the first being the growing economic necessity to erect buildings on sites which have hitherto emained undeveloped on account of the poor bearing value of the ground, and the second the present-day tendency to design buildings for smaller unit loads than in the past. So far as the superstructure is concerned this latter tendency is justified, not only by the fact that the loads are in most cases smaller than we have assumed them to be, but also by the advance in methods of design and improvements in the quality of materials.
