To the Editor of The Structural Engineer. “Augmented Steel.” Sir,-Under the above heading you have published an interesting conlmunication of Mr. W. B. Scott, showing what increase of bearing strength could be attained by imbedding steel members in concrete. I find, considered in the above noted article, two forms of such composite members. The “haunched” girder where the effective bearing height of an I beam has been increased by help of a concrete plate (the article gives all details of this composition), and the “composite” column, as it is called in American prescriptions, with a few references to the American practice.
The erection of the superstructures of metallic bridges is a subject of importance to civil engineers whose duties require them to deal with the design and construction of these works of public utility. The Institution is fortunate in having had several papers illustrating this subject in some detail. Adam Hunter
