Mr. J. TAYLOR THOMPSON (L.N.E.R.) proposed a hearty vote of thanks to Mr. Bruff for
his interesting paper, and particularly for the lantern slides by which he had illustrated it, some of which had disclosed steelwork in a condition which was almost startling. Another reason why Mr. Bruff merited the thanks of engineers was that he was the outstanding enthusiast in this country, if not in the world, for the application of welding to the repair of bridges.
AT ports subject to tidal fluctuations the water is usually impounded at a level
approaching that of high water of spring tides and often at a considerably higher level. The entrance locks are generally provided with two or three pairs of double leaf gates, rotating on vertical a,xes at the sides of the lock. This paper deals with the design and construction of such gates according to modern British practice, for waterways between 50 ft. and 130 ft. in widt,h and in depth from 25 ft. to 55 ft.
The importance and urgent need of reliable information with regard to the welding of steel structures has been forcibly emphasised by the collapse of an important all-welded bridge in Belgium.
