In the September, October and November, 1940, issues of The Structural Engineer there appeared an abstract of an Interim Report on the phenoyna responsible for the cracking of buildings constructed on the Black Cotton and "Kyatti” soils of the Mandalay District, Burma. With the completion of the investigations and the preparation of the final report, it is now possible to give the causes of the phenomena recorded. These are reproduced, in abstract form, for the information of those interested in such Engineering Soil Problems. F.L.D. Wooltorton

Statistical Methods

Statistical Methods

When a series of measurements is made in any research, they will not all agree, because the work must inevitably be affected by experimental errors, and it may also be affected by other influences which cannot be eliminated, or which can only be partly eliminated, by the experimental technique available. Even if one or other of these influences can be eliminated, the value of the research may be reduced by the restriction, because then no information is provided on the action of the eliminated influence, which may be of importance.
