The development of sites and erection of factories and other buildings for the needs of the various Service Departments during the war meant the building up of site organisations by the supervising authorities which are of interest if we consider, as some of us do, that many of the post-war schemes will yet require to be tackled along somewhat similar lines.

1. THE MECHANICS OF MINING SUBSIDENCE The phenomena connected with Mining Subsidence depend on the nature of the strata, the position, thickness and slope of the seams on the one hand, and on the manner and timing of the working of the seams on the other. Dr. K.W. Mautner
The authors have presented an interesting method for the rapid estimation of maximum bending moments in decks of suspension bridges. Their approximate analysis draws to a logical conclusion the more general method described by Bowen and Charlton (reference 3 of the paper). It is clear that the use of symmetry and antisymmetry offers a considerable computational advantage :two sets of three linear simultaneous equations are solved far more quickly than one set of six. F. Van der Woude, M.S. Gregory and H.I.A. Hegab
