The bearing capacity of shallow and deep foundations under a central load is briefly discussed, and the effects of eccentricity and inclination of the load are indicated. The total and differential settlements of foundations are estimated in relation to the soil and foundation characteristics and the stiffness of the structure. The settlement
stresses in foundation and superstructure are considered, and recent observations on brick walls and cladded building frames are analysed. The lateral movement and tilting of foundations are estimated and illustrated by the results of some loading tests on model portal frames on clay and sand.
Mr J. M. Mawditt (M): The paper is to be commended for simplifying the design procedure associated with the use of the material stress -strain curves as required by clause 220.127.116.11. of CP 110.
Professor A. L. L. Baker (F): Mr. President, will attempt to be concise and comprehensible but not comprehensive, and begin by complimenting Dr. Matthews on his introduction and grasp of the task before us of creating a common international concrete Code. The national delegates who first met at Luxembourg in 1953 were unofficial enthusiasts. Colonel Galbraith, who was President at that time, had the
foresight to see the significance of the CEB which was then formed and he asked me to attend.
