These papers provide a much needed review and rationalisation of foundation problems in what is essentially the house building industry. In this respect, I hope that they both obtain the circulation they deserve amongst those people who actually design and execute this type of work-who, in the majority of cases, are not members of the Institution. D.A. Cook

Reinforced and Prestressed Masonry. What do you want in a Code?

The beam failed under a central applied load of 12 t. Other tests followed in the next 3 years including General Pasley's, which established the need for a strong mortar for bond to the reinforcement. R.J.M. Sutherland
