Correspondence. Stanchion Design

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.
