Sir,-I have read, with great interest, the Paper on Autogenous Healing of Concrete by Nr. E. F. Whitlam, but think his conclusions are open to question.
The President introduced the Authors, who then presented their paper.
The problem of brittle fracture in mild steel, which is normally regarded as a ductile material, has been with engineers for many years, whether they have realised it or not. A recent review by M. E. Shank cited cases as far back as 1886, and many other cases are reported in the engineering literature. A still greater number have probably not been reported publicly.
