The Structural Engineer

At the commencement of hostilities in 1914 the design and erection of structural steel work was comparatively a new subject in military engineering, and it will be understood that an enormous amount of labour was involved in the development of the details. Gerald M. Flood

NOBODY can look at the Forth Bridge without being aware that it is great not only in size but in conception. It is a mighty work of engineering and it is also a work of art. A. Trystan Edwards

The great rise in the cost of bricks and in the wages of the building trades workmen, added to the general scarcity of operatives in certain of the essential crafts of the building industry, impelled the various municipalities throughout the Netherlands to adopt alternative and supplemental methods of house building. The City of Amsterdam experimented upon a somewhat considerable scale with new materials and methods, and with the application of mechanical contrivances. More than 40 different systems of concrete building were in the first instance carefully considered and elaborate tests were carried out by the officers of the municipality. As a result of these experiments the municipality decided to adopt for a thorough and practical test 10 of these various systems of concrete building and seven building firms were entrusted with contracts for the erection of 900 dwellings, in all, upon one of the extensive housing estates acquired by the city authorities.

THE columns of a building are of greater importance than any other parts of the construction. At first blush, it may strike one that all parts of a building are equally important; but there is a double, or, in fact, a triple duty on the columns of a building, and hence the stability and integrity of a structure depends in a larger degree on the columns than on any other elements of a structure.

The building industry is one of the oldest in the world, for one of the primary needs of mankind is shelter. But it is only within the last half-century that iron and steel have played any large part in it. But even to-day,in the words of Professor Beresford Pite, F.R.I.B .A., in Vol. I. of "Building Construction," "The possibilities of girder and stanchion construction, especially in buildings for commercial purposes, have not yet found their limits."
