Sir,-Referring to Mr. Andrews’ article in the Jsnuary issue of The Structural Engineer, the report which he quotes from was only intended to be a summary of the actual results obtained.
There are two subjects which may be said to have gripped the imagination of engineering scientists for the past 70 years; they are the strength of columns and the fatigue of metals. Both have this in common that the further they are investigated the more we realise that, they are more complex than we previously realised, and that many of our previous ideas upon them have to be scrapped or revised. Hon. Editor
