Applications of Mechanical Science


    TWO pamphlets recently issued by the Association of Engineering and Shipbuilding Draughtsmen (London: The Draughtsman Publishing Co., Ltd.) may be cited as indicating the continued process of translating the work of investigation and research into the most practical terms. One of these is Part 2 of “The Application of Influence Lines to the Stress Analysis of Beams and Lattice Girders” by R. McCrae (2s.), of which Part 1 dealing with beams was noticed in NATURE of May 23, p. 861. The part now published treats of lattice girders and deals with various types of loading.
