The author is to be congratulated on having tackled the difficult problem of linking the behaviour of the foundation with that of the structure, and with considerable success. It is obvious that a very wide field of research has been opened up, but it may not have been noticed by readers that this is one aspect of a more general approach to the problem of the behaviour of the complete structure, frame, encasement, floors, walls, foundations and all. In recent years very great advances have been made in the knowledge of the behaviour of bare steel frames, both under working (elastic) conditions, and also at " ultimate " or " plastic " collapse. Without in any way detracting from the merit of such work it is nevertheless clear from a study of Fig. 7 (c) of the paper that the stresses in the frame can in addition be modified, in some cases very considerably, by the other elements of the complete structure, most of all by floors and walls.

Some Economic Aspects of Single Storey Shed Design

Some Economic Aspects of Single Storey Shed Design

Of the constructions that fall to the lot of the structural engineer, single storey sheds are perhaps the most prosaic. The traditional medium for such buildings has, for many years, been light latticed rolled steelwork which to a great degree has become standardised by commercial usage. R.P. Haines

The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe. Discussion on Mr. Frost's Paper

The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe. Discussion on Mr. Frost's Paper

Mr. M. B. Buxton, M.C., MA., A.M.Inst.C.E. (Member), proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Frost for his paper, said that the Curnberland Hotel and its annexe constituted one of the largest buildings ever erected in this country, and by reason of the fact that it had bedrooms and living rooms situatcti all round the building, with no external lavatories and bathrooms -a system adopted in many of the Carlatlian and American hotels-it marked a great step forward. The paper and illustrations were of extraordinary interest, for they indicated the great difficulties duo to the site, in connection with the st.celwork and retaining walls, and the special construction adopted, and they indicated how those difficulties were overcome. The Institution was very proud indeed of the fact that one of its members had been appointed engineer for this great building. One might reasonably have expected that one of the well-known civil engineering firms would have been appointed. Mr. Frost was to be congratulated on his appointment, which had done honour to the Institution, as well as to himself.
