THE introduction of high tensile steels for structural work, in common with all new developments, has created a number of practical problems for the engineer and the metallurgist alike. Among these problems one of the most interesting at this moment is provided by the necessity for obtaining a reliable and efficient riveted joint. William Barr
SIR,-The publication of Mr. Roberts’s paper* read before the Institution last March gives an opportunity for reconsideration. Coming to it with fresh interest one is able to grasp points missed upon the first encounter. One of the most interesting parts to me was the description of tests made on mild steel and Chromador pillars and followed by proposed pillar stresses for the new steel. But Professor Robertson’s pillar formula contains within itself the necessary adjustment for steels of various yields.
DURING the last ten years, since Turkey adopted the Republican regime and began to model her ideas and ideals on modern Western lines, great progress has been made in all kinds of constructional and engineering work. The most striking activity has been shown in rai1way and road building, though the latter has not yet fully received the attention it justly merits. W. Cramer
