The PRESIDENT, introducing Mr. Wetton, reminded the meeting that he was the author of the standard work on arbitrations.
The purpose of this paper is a contribution to our Institution of actual experience in the design and construction of an all-welded steel structure of the multiple-storied type. No attempt is made to deal with the technique of electric arc welding as this subject is amply covered elsewhere. The various stages of the work are given in sequence, and are classified under the following sections :-
(l ) Description of Building.
(2) Drawing Office-Design Detail and
(3) Fabrication in workshop.
(4) Erection at Site.
(5) Conclusions from experience gained.
Gentlemen,-On this, the first ordinary general meeting of your Institution at which I have the honour to serve as your President, I desire firstly to thank you for the honour you have given me in making me, for one year, your President, and secondly to say how sensible I am of my inadequacy to fulfil the duties which devolve upon me. However, I promise you I shall do my best to serve and shaall appreciate all the help which is available from every quarter.
