THE PRESIDENT, introducing Mr. Stroyer, recalled that in a paper which he himself had read before the Institution some time ago he had referred to some work in connection with reinforced concrete as applied to docks, and had alno given some illustrations of the first pair of reinforced concrete lock gates ever constructed at that time, so far as he knew Mr. Stroyer had been responsible for the details of the design of those gates, and for the execution of the work, and he had done a considerable amount of subsequent work both in this and in other departments.
Referring to the enquiry on p. 364 of the Journal for November, signed “H.R.W.”- re the suspenders in the side spans of the Menai Bridge.
IN the previous eleven chapters I have dealt with various aspects of the relation of
art to engineering. It may be desirable to summarise the argument so that its general purpose may be declared in the simplest manner possible. I therefore propose to take the chapters one by one and give the briefest resumé of each. The argument is of course by no means exhausted, but it will perhaps be found that a fairly wide range of subject has been dealt with in the discussion and that some very definite conclusions have been reached.
