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.
