Augmented Steel

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." N.B.
