(1) FOR a number of years, as professor and director of the Concrete Laboratory, Karlsruhe, as a private investigator in his own laboratory and as a practising engineer, Dr. E. Probst has studied the use of concrete, its properties and its possibilities, and the results and conclusions arising out of this work have recently been published. In the English translation, “Principles of Plain and Reinforced Concrete Construction”, for which the author accepts responsibility and which may therefore be taken as authoritative, his investigations have been described and explained in an easy style and in full accord with English nomenclature and units, the notation and symbols being those adopted in the Report of the Reinforced Concrete Structures Committee (Department of Scientific and Industrial Research).
