The articles by Mr. W. Basil Scott, in The Structural Engineer, for November,
1928, and August, 1929, on what he terms "Augmented Steel," must be of great interest to many engineers, like myself,who are dissatisfied with the uneconomic method of designing concrete-encased structural steelwork on the common assumption that,
the steel derives no assistance from the concrete but, on the contrary, has to support it as a dead load. Such designing retards progress towards the best use of modern building materials or, as Mr. Scott has expressed it, "The practice imposes an unfair penalty on economic steelwork design."

Some American Comparisons Discussion on Mr Bowers' Paper

The paper bearing the above title, which appeared in “The Structural Engineer” for October was read at the meeting of the Institution of Structural Engineers held on October 24, at 10, Upper Belgrave Street, S.W.1, the chair being taken, in the absence of the President, Colonel Moncrieff, by Mr. S. Bybancler (Member of Council). The discussion which ensued was adjourned to Thursday, November 7, when it was again resumed under the chairmanship of Mr. Bylander. The proceedings of both dates are reported below. Owing to limitations of space it has not been found possible to publish the discussion in extenso, while, for the same reason, it, has been found necessary considerably to condense the remarks made by individual speakers who took part in that discussion.
