The Western Society of Engineers of Pennsylvania has inaugurated a comprehensive test
on two panels of steel structure at the plant of the American Bridge Company, Gary, Ind. The object of these tests is to determine the strength added to a typical steel utructure by the concrete used for fireproofing and regulation concrete slab floors.

New Reinforced Concrete Bridge Over the River Avon

A very interesting description of the construction of the new Stare Bridge, Warwickshire, was given by Mr. D. H. Brown, County Surveyor of Warwickshire, in a paper prepared for a meeting of the Institution of Municipal and County Engineers, West Midlands District, which was held at Kenilworth recently.

<h4>Ball Clays</h4>

Ball Clays

The Department of Scientific and Industrial Research has just issued, through H.M. Stationery Office, a volume of its special reports on the mineral resources of Great Britain. It deals with the geological relations, nature and uses, and mineral, chemical and physical properties of ball clays, that is to say, of those plastic "transported" clays which, when fired in an oxidising atmosphere to the temperature of certain pottery ovens approximately 1,150 deg.-1,200 deg. C.-have a white or nearly white colour. They are formed by the decomposition of felspathic rocks, by natural agencies. In this decomposition, silicates such as the felspars break down, and the products ultimately undergo hydration with the formation of the hydrated silicate of aluminium, kaolinite, and, in many cases, mixtures of hydrated oxides. Where these products are found resting in the parent rock, the clays are termed residual; where they have been transported and deposited elsewhere, they are known as transported clays. The china clays of Cornwall are typical examples of the former; the ball clays discussed in this memoir are characteristic examples of the latter. Dr. Alex Scott

<h4>Asphalt as a Vibration Absorbent</h4>

Asphalt as a Vibration Absorbent

Sir Courtauld Thomson, chairman of the Limmer and Trinidad Lake Asphalt Company, in his speech at the annual general meeting in March, referred to the attention the company’s staff was paying to the problem of vibration, and the writers, who have worked in collaboration with the company’s staff, are now able to reproduce some results of experiments recently carried out.
