Lt.-Col. H. S. ROGERS, C.M.G., D.S.0, President, who opened the meeting, welcomed the President and members of the British Section of the French Civil Engineers, and said he invited their President, Mr. Halcrow, to take the chair and conduct the meeting, feeling that in the circumstances that would be fitting.
THE CHAIRMAN (Lt.-Colonel H. S. ROGERS, C.M.G., D.S.O., M.1.Struct.E.) said there was so much in the paper that he felt still a little confused, though he had seen some of the Exhibitions, even that which was held in Paris in 1889.
In the Final Report of the Steel Structures Research Committee1 recommendations for the design of beams are made (p. 547). The basis of the recommendations is explained in a paper in the same report by Professor Batho (p. 364) which also gives a more exact and fundamental method of determining the allowable end moments on loaded beams. Both methods are based upon experimental results concerning the relation between bending moment) and angular deformation of end connections. The connections are divided into four classes according to their degree of rigidity and minimum requirements are specified for each class. S.D. Lash
