THE twentieth century has witnessed remarkable developments in those provinces of engineering pertaining to the construction of bridges and dams. Whilst all engineering progress takes place relatively gradually, certain periods occur during which progress is notably accelerated, and the beginning of the century closely accentuates the commencement of such a period of acceleration. It is further noteworthy that the evidences of increased skill, excellence of design and workmanship and boldness of conception during the past thirty years have not been the monopoly of any one nation, but have been very generally shared by all the great industrial civilisations.
