DEAR SIR,-In the issue of The Structural Engineer last month Mr. Williams asks for an
explanation of the apparent inconsistency between:-
(a) Statements attributing an absolute relationship between water-cement ratio and compressive strength of concrete; and on the other hand-
(b) A statement by Dr. Glanville confirming this but at the same time comparing a 3:1 sand-cement and 4:2:1 concrete as having the same approximate strength if the water-cement ratio is 0.5 in the former case and 0.6 in the latter.
1. The form of steel structural members.
The use of steel in foundations, marine and river structures which is constantly expanding in Germany, is founded upon the use of two steel structural elements, that is, sheet piling and bearing piles.
Among the duties which fall to the structural engineer in the course of his profession
is the design of industrial buildings where the problem is to fulfil certain industrial requirements in the most economical way.
