In presenting the paper, Dr. S. MACKEY expressed the author’s regret that an arithmetical error involving the panel dimensions had occurred in Table 8 and was not discovered in time to alter the proofs. The authors had corrected this in the revised Table given below.

Introduction to the Vacuum Concrete Processes

Introduction to the Vacuum Concrete Processes

We have become accustomed to the pressure of the atmosphere in which we live and fail generally to realise the latent power it represents. But we have a simple means of recalling it to mind. If we consider a mountain lake, its waters also represent potential energy. To release this energy, all that need be done is to install a suitable plant (a hydro-electric station) at a lower point, where the waters of the lake exercise considerable pressures which can be utilised in work. In the same way, to “awake” atmospheric energy, it suffices to provide a source of low pressure (a vacuum unit) in relation to which the atmosphere acts as an infinite reservoir of compressed air. I.

The Stress Analysis of Continuous Frames: A Comparison of Various Methods. Discussion on Mr. E.H. Ba

Mr. E. H. BATEMAN, introducing the paper for discussion, gave a brief synopsis of the paper illustrating his remarks by blackboard sketches. He drew particular attention to the new method of analysis for multistorey frames by remainder-distribution, which he claimed had special advantages in connection with the determination of stresses due to wind forces; in this connection he mentioned the Fifth Report of the Wind Bracing Sub-committee of the American Society of Civil Engineers (Proceedings, March, 1936) in which were recorded the times required to solve a particular problem by the methods hitherto available, namely, the moment-distribution method of Professor Hardy Cross and Dr. Goldberg’s adaptation of the slope deflection system.
