The subject of this paper is the prestressed concrete pipe and its structural elements. Pipes of this description are used as high-pressure conduits, mainly for water supply, with a diameter range from 18 ins. to 108 ins.
The Breakwater in Plymouth Sound was designed by Mr. John Rennie in 1806, and he was responsible for its construction until his death in 1821, when his son, George, assumed the responsibility.

This paper contains a brief description of electronic digital computers and the manner in which programmes are prepared for them. Two examples of their use in structural engineering are included:
(i) The elastic analysis of plane rigid frames first tackled by Livesly.
(ii) The calculation of influence coefficients for an aeroplane wing considered as a cantilever plate.
