A joint meeting of the Institution of Structural Engineers and the British Section of the Societe des Ingenieurs Civils de France was held at 11, Upper Belgrave Street, London, S.W.1, on Thursday, 12th November, 1953. Lt.-Colonel R. F. Galbraith, M.C.,
B.Sc., A.M.I.C.E., President of the Institution, was in the Chair.
FOR many years, jetties and other light piers were, by tradition, built in timber. This material, however, presents difficulties in maintenance, is subject to rot and prone to attack from the teredo which all contribute in shortening thc life of timber structures. Consequently it seemed reasonable to replace timber by ferro-concrete.
