Moon, A Ramsay
After indicating his pleasure at being given the opportunity of having his work discussed at the Institution, the author pointed out that the range of size covered in his experiments so far was limited by the testing equipment available, the majority of columns tested being of 3.5 by 3.5 inches cross-section, with a core having 2.5 inches over main steel. A limited number of larger columns had been tested at the Building Research Station, some of which were geometrically similar, and some dissimilar, the results indicating that departure from similarity, and even departure from size, in some instances, were both liable to affect the laws governing the crushing load.
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.
