The CHAIRMAN expressed regret that, Sir Alexander Gibb, G.B.E., C.B., F.R.S., President
of the Institute of Welding, and MR. A. Ramsay Moon, Secretary of the Institute, were unable to be present owing to illness.
SIR,-In Volume 16 in the discussion on the paper. “Moments in Flat Slabs,” a written
contribution from Mr. Montgomery Smith is quoted the points of which I should like to
deal with in order:
THE average man would probably say tha ta road is not a structure, but indeed it is
a very complex one. In all forms of structural engineering where the engineer is concerned to overcome the forces of nature, his problem commences at the bottom, whether the structure is a bridge, a road, or a skyscraper. The security and permanence of his foundations control the life of the structure, and in no form of engineering is this truer than in the building of a highway.
