IT is proposed in the following pages to write generally on the theoretical and practical aspects of elastic stability. No doubt part, of the ground covered is already familiar, but it is considered necessary to include the elementary principles, so that there may be as few gaps as possible in the argument. Thus we may have some idea of the theoretical effects of various combinations of loading and end conditions
and it may then be seen to what extent we are justified in relying on any particularly fixed or stlereotyped method of design for such a wide range of conditions.

Mr. William G. Baird writes :
' Professor Sawko has presented a paper which will be of interest to all engineers who seek a quick and simple solution to the complex problem of analysing the loads and moments carried by a group of piles. However, some doubt exists as to the reliability of the method when it is applied to physical problems. '
Despite a lack of experimental examples, Tianjian Ji considers this a useful reference book for researchers and those who fi nd the conventional viscous damping model insufficient in their practical design and analysis.
