AT the General Meeting of the Institution, held on Thursday, the 21st February, the following paper was read by DR. E. H. SALMON:- I. That Euler’s limiting load merely implies passage from one type of stable equilibrium to another, and does not involve the failure of the column. (Quoted in "Popular Fallacies Explained and Corrected,” by A.S.E. Ackermann, BSc. Engineering), 3rd edition, p. 884, in the inverse form, from a review by L.N.G.F. in "Nature,” June 24, 1920.) E.H.

Cement Factory in Lourenço, Marques

Cement Factory in Lourenço, Marques

AMONGST the interesting developments expected in the Provence of Mozambique (Portuguese East Africa) is the completion of it works to produce Portland Cement at Lourenço, Marques. At the present time a £9,O00,000 loan to the Provence is being negotiated and irrigation and other works will benefit. To find cement on the site as it were is therefore a matter of interest. The factory itself is interesting in that of its kind it is probably the last word in up-to-date manufacture, and a high class cement is expected. The construction stage has now terminated and production is likely to commence this month. South African Correspondent

The Essentials of Reinforced Concrete Design. An Elementary Explanation from First Principles for St

THE progress made in reinforced concrete construction during the past twenty years has been so great that a knowledge of the principles of reinforced concrete design is now almost essential to every young structural engineer who has his career before him; the past ten years has seen a very valuable and extensive addition to the literature of the subject, but many students still have considerable difficulty in following the treatment usually given.

Unsymmetrical Beam Loading. A Short Cut to the Bending Moment Diagram with Notes on Moving Loads.

IN calculating the bending moments in a beam freely supported at the ends it is usual, when the loading is not symmetrical, first to calculate an end reaction. Many people do not realise that the calculations can be put in such a form that the complete bending moment and shear diagrams can be drawn without further calculation. W.A. Green
