Mr. L. SCOTT WHITE (Vice-president), in proposing a vote of thanks to the Author for his paper, said Mr. Ramsay Moon had presented the meeting with a great array of achievements accomplished during the war years.
During the past two years, several papers have described different engineering aspects ofghe war effort in which the constructional steelwork industry has been concerned. The paper by Major W.J. Hodge, R.E., in January, 1946, on the Mulberry Harbour, and the paper by Lt.-Col. S. K-Stewart, R.E.in Nbvember, 1946, on Military Bridging, described two of the outstanding engineering successes of the war. Both these papers were of special interest to the welding enthusiast because they described work which was mainly welded, and could not have been built except by welding. For the design and operation of the equipment described in these two papers, the honour belongs to the Services and the Service Departments, but for the construction of the equipment much
credit is due to the constructional steelwork industry.

Mr. William G. Baird writes :
' Professor Sawko has presented a paper which will be of interest to all engineers who seek a quick and simple solution to the complex problem of analysing the loads and moments carried by a group of piles. However, some doubt exists as to the reliability of the method when it is applied to physical problems. '
