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.
The paper is concerned with the Merrison rules method for the design ribs of plate and box girder webs. The rationale for the rules is outlined, and rib size as predicted by them is compared with rib size predicted from elastic, small deflection, plate theory.
Mr. T. H. Nicholson: It is my pleasure to introduce the first part of the paper on behalf of Mr. Robertson and myself.
