The PRESIDENT,proposed a vote of thanks to Professor Pugsley for his valuable paper, and for the explanations he had given in presenting it.
From Mr. S. P. BANERJEE (Associate Member) : The writer appreciated the paper from the point of view that it summarised the factors which the Structural Engineers should keep in mind when dealing with problems on foundation design. On the question of choice of foundation, whether rigid or flexible, a design which keeps the balance of the elastic behaviours of the soil and the foundation structure, in keeping with the
permissible relative settlements, would appear to be most satisfactory.
The authors have been asked to write this Paper by way of expounding and illustrating some of the matters raised in the Report issued by the Heads of the Works Directorates of the Ministry of Works and Service Departments on the Economic use of Building Materials, and they are limiting their observations to those subjects of more particular interest to the members of this Institution, and ,are including reference to the Steel Economy Bulletins.
