The authors have presented an interesting method for the rapid estimation of maximum bending moments in decks of suspension bridges. Their approximate analysis draws to a logical conclusion the more general method described by Bowen and Charlton (reference 3 of the paper). It is clear that the use of symmetry and antisymmetry offers a considerable computational advantage :two sets of three linear simultaneous equations are solved far more quickly than one set of six. F. Van der Woude, M.S. Gregory and H.I.A. Hegab

Mr. P. B. Ronan: I would like to ask the authors if in retrospect they felt that the site investigation, in particular for a building of this magnitude, was adequate with particular reference to the two boreholes which were put down to give information about groundwater?
