The Chairman introduced the authors who then presented the paper, and showed a large number of slides, which illustrated the structural aspects of the Brinsworth strip mill. They also showed a very interesting film of the sequence of operations in the
production of steel strip; starting with the charging and tapping of the molten metal into the ladles, the control of analysis and temperature, cooling and annealing processes, the rolling of the ingots by stages down to strip, the eventual emergence of the strip and the coiling of it at a rate of about 30 m.p.h.
THE PRESIDENT, proposing a vote of thanks to Dr. Collins, said that, as stated in the paper, research on a scale such as he had discussed could not be described adequately unless only a certain short term of years was covered at a time, and it would be agreed that he had dealt with it adequately in this paper.
A brief historical reference is made particularly relating to structural developments. The main design features of headframes and winder towers and the principal colliery buildings are discussed. Reference is made to some design and constructional aspects of
shaft linings, insets, skip pockets and underground roadways.
