To the Editor of The Structural Engineer. Sir,- May I express appreciation of the letter from Mr. Van Vleck, published in your July issue. It may be that undue antagonism to Mr. Bossom will be read into it. For my part, I hope this will not be so.

In addition, the concrete encasement of steel beams is frequently extended laterally to form parts of a structure, such as floors. Robert A. Caughey and W. Basil Scott
