With the extensive use of reinforced concrete for modern bridge construction, semicircular, segmental and semi-elliptical arches of brick, plain concrete or stone are much less frequently adopted for new works than was formerly the case; but the revival of road transport occasioned by the use of the petrol driven vehicle brings home to the structural and civil engineer the importance of the problem of the stability of the arch.

<h4>Professional Associations in England</h4>

Professional Associations in England

The following short article is quoted from the Proceedings of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Part 2, May, 1929. It is not recent, but will probably be of general interest to members :- Between 1O and 15 years ago extensive studies were made by experienced investigators, Sidney and Beatrice Webb, covering the development and status of professional associations in England. Special interest attaches to this because it was completed and published in the midst of the World War. What follows is abstracted or quoted from “The New Statesman,” a forward-looking British weekly. The material appeared in two parts, as special supplements to the issues of April 21 and 28, 1917.

<h4>The Romance of Silica</h4>

The Romance of Silica

Silica forms 60 per cent. by weight of the earth’s crust, and as the Great Architect of the Universe has chosen silica for the frame of this earth, so the structural engineer, in his infinitely humbler capacity, uses it to form about 60 to 70 per cent. of the weight of concrete. E.F. Sargeant
