An Ordinary Meeting of the Institution will be held at 11 Upper Belgrave Street, London, S.W.1, on Thursday, 8th January, 1948, at 6 p.m., when a paper entitled "Some Aspects of the Supervision of Civil Engineering and Building Contracts in Wartime" will he given by Mr. E.H. Macmillen, B.Sc., A.M.I.C.E., A.M.I.Struct.E.
The paper following embodies a description of works recently carried out in the construction of Meaford Power Station and has been confined to the civil engineering and structural aspects of the station, principally as regards the foundation works and certain features and methods of construction it was thought may be of interest.
The heading of this article may at first appear strange, as every Engineering Handbook contains tables of the properties of Rolled Steel Joists. Such tables usually give the dimensions and weights of the various standard sections, and in addition contain information on their resistance to tension (area), compression (radius of gyration), to bending (section modulus), and to deflection (moment of inertia). Although a wide range of applications of R.S.J.’s is thereby covered, cases occur not infrequently where further information on some particular dimension or property is required.
