Mr. W. C. COCKING (Member of Council) proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Chettoe for the paper and said that all members present must have enjoyed, as he had, the opportunity of listening to a paper so full of practical engineering. He was sure also that very many of those present must have envied Mr. Chettoe the opportunities he had had of carrying out such interesting work as that described in the paper.

Discussion. Utilisation of Concrete

The CHAIRMAN (Sir George W. Humphreys, K.S.E., Past President, .Inst. C.E., and President of the British Section of the Societe) said it was a privilege to meet to hear a paper by a distinguished French engineer, M. Freyssinet, upon a subject with which his name had become identified in the minds not only of his compatriots but also of engineers in all parts of the globe.

New Concepts in the Design of Structural Concrete. Discussion on the paper by R. E. Rowe MA ScD AMlS

Professor A. L. L. Baker (Member) opened the discussion by saying that he agreed entirely with what the authors had said in their presentation but not with what they had written in the paper. He agreed with the statistical, probabilistic approach. It was obviously the only logical way of dealing with the variations of strengths of materials and the variations and vagaries of loading. There were one or two points in the paper which Professor Baker found slightly misleading. First of all, the matter of basing a design entirely upon a probability of failure-10-7-and a minimum cost, and saying that one could not entirely guarantee a structure against failure, needed some qualification. He thought this was rather a dangerous statement.
