THE subject of policy in engineering design is one about which anyone who thinks at all must think strongly, and therefore, if anything herein seems calculated to give offence, please accept the author’s assurance that criticisms are directed not against individuals, but against a pernicious system.

Housing in the Netherlands

Housing in the Netherlands

A RAPID yet detailed survey of the housing problem in the Netherlands indicates that, whereas in the British Isles house building during the period of the Great War was suspended, almost entirely; in Holland throughout the war the production of houses was maintained at a fairly high level. Indeed the provision of dwellings for the people from 1915 onwards was maintained at a sufficiently high level to relieve very considerably the housing shortage in that country. Sir Charles T.

Continuous Beams. Notes on Graphic Calculation for any Loads, Spans and Stiffness
