The “Vierendeel,” or “open-frame,” girder, has been extensively employed on the Continent and elsewhere, mostly in bridge construction. Few continuous girders of this type have been built, but many uses may yet be found for them. A paper recently published in Japan deals with a method of analysis of this highly-redundant continuous structure, and is probably the first in the field. The method propounded there is based on the well-known Slope-Deflection Method, and involves the systematic wriring of a large number of simultaneous equations and their subsequent solution by iteration.

Building on Fill with Special Reference to the Settlement of a Large Factory Discussion on Dr. G. G.

The CHAIRMAN, whose pleasurable duty it was to propose formally a vote of thanks to Dr. Meyerhof for his paper, said there was no need to emphasise the importance of the subject discussed therein; its importance was indicated by the large number present at the meeting. In the paper Dr. Meyerhof had given a very nice blend of the theoretical and the practical; in other words, he had given the results of research work and had analysed them, and an indication of their practical application. The meeting wished to thank him heartily for his paper and for his excellent presentation of it.

The Structural Engineer as Arbitrator, Expert Witness and Advocate

Arbitration is a method of settling disputes by referring them to one or more specially appointed persons, instead of in the Courts. A great variety of matters can be referred to arbitration, but its advantages are greatest when the issues are of a technical nature. It has the more general advantage that the time and place of the hearing can be fixed to suit the convenience of the parties and others engaged in the proceedings. The text-books on the subject do not stress this point. Gower Pimm
