THE PRESIDENT (Mr. F. S. Snow, M.I.C.E., M.I.Mech.E., M.I.Struct.E.), introduced the author, who said the building described was designed before the war and the construction was commenced before the war; it could not be claimed, therefore, that it represented the last word in structural design. For that reason the paper treated the subject non-technically and aimed to give a description of the actual construction which had taken place so far.
Mr. L. E. KENT (Member of Council), proposed a very hearty vote of thanks to the authors for their paper, and congratulated them on the immense amount of detailed work they must have done in order to achieve the results they had published and on the immense amount of time they must have devoted to their research.
The science of soil mechanics has two distinct branches:
(I). The analysis, control and treatment of soils which are to be used as constructional materials.
(II). The investigation of the properties and behaviour of the soil in its natural position in the ground.
