“Harbour Engineering”



LEST it should be assumed that I tacitly acquiesce in certain sins of omission alleged in the review of the second edition of the above book, which appeared in NATURE of June 13, may I point out that the matters in question (slipway construction, durability of concrete in sea-water, mechanical handling of material, etc.) are discussed so fully in the companion volume on “Dock Engineering,” to which they are equally, if not more, appropriate, that it seemed undesirable to include any extended notice of them in “Harbour Engineering”? Reference to this fact is to be found in several places (pp. 147, 265, etc.).
