HOUSING is not a subject with which the Structural Engineer is generally concerned, but it is one which would benefit greatly by his attention. The principal object of this article is to present the case, from an engineering point of view, for the use of concrete for the present day building requirements, particularly in so far as the housing problem is concerned, and having regard to the shortage of bricks and skilled labour. Major W.H. Smith

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

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.
