Examples of the Underpinning of Heavy Structures

THE subject of this short address is somewhat out of the ordinary run of work which the structural engineer is customarily called on to undertake, but even as that is so, accordingly, I believe is its importance increased, and it is one which I think seldom constitutes the basis of a paper. I have chosen it as my subject because in my experience I have been responsible for a considerable amount, of underpinning work which has been instructive for me, and I trust my remarks may be interesting, particularly to the younger members of our Institution.
