WHEN the water content of cement grout exceeds a certain percentage a sediment is rapidly formed. Grout begins to be formed at a mixture by weight of about 35 parts of water with 100 parts of cement. If the water content is increased above this point the cement tends to settle to the bottom. This is a disadvantage at all casting with cement grout; because the consistency of the grout cannot be varied to any extent by subsequent addition of water. When the method of pouring grout through a tube on a crushed stone bed is used for submarine concrete construction, it is consequently impossible to moderate the strength of the concrete, it will always require the same excessive quantity of cement. It is certainly true that it will also produce a very high class concrete, if the work has been well performed. Carl Forssell

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

BY the theorem of three moments the solution of continuous beam problems involves a good deal of calculation, and the results are open to the criticism that the assumption on which the theorem is based are rarely correct in practice, so that they are no nearer actuality than those obtained more simply by a graphic method based on the same assumptions.
