Mr. Jackson added to the paper the following extract from the Kelvin Lecture of last year, delivered by Professor W. L. Bragg to the Institution of Electrical Engineers :-
To the EDITOR of The Structural Engineer. SIR,--Professor Abrams has stated that with a given fineness modulus and water-cement ratio, the strengths of concrete produced from a widely varying range of aggregates will be the same.
Reinforced Concrete. I have read that reinforced concrete structures were built by the ancients; in Rome, evidences have been found of these, and some of them I have seen myself. I do know that reinforced concrete of a kind was used in many buildings in this country prior to 1909, although not in quite the same manner as it is now used. W.T. Creswell
