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:
Mr. GOWER B. R. PIMM, M.Inst.C.E., M.I.Struct.E., proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Hiley for the paper, said that the pleasure of so doing was all the greater because he was privileged to be associated with Mr. Hiley on the Institution's Panel dealing with piling. The Hiley piling formula was well known, and the profession owed a debt of gratitude to Mr. Hiley for his work in connection with piling.
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. H.E. Brooke-Bradley
