Notices and proceedings [Elections, transfers, deaths etc.]

THE CHAIRMAN (Mr. H. J. Deane, Past President) said he might possibly add to what Mr. Burns had said in connection with “ slump,’’ referred to on page 440. Some might wonder why the engineers carrying out this work should have made a point of having this slump taken, but Mr. Burns, quite rightly, had not mentioned the question of specification. He had been dealing solely with the difficulties and intricacies of foundations which were rather out of the ordinary. I n order, however, to obtain satisfactory results, bearing in mind the fact that the Contractors desired to use chutes for placing the concrete, one had to arrange a specification which would meet these conditions, and at the same time give the amount of strength that was necessary for the work in general.
