The first edition of this volume appeared in 1889, but developments in the manufacture and testing of portland cement and the increasing use of concrete made a revision necessary in 1899; and now the extensive use of plain concrete and the introduction of reinforced concrete make a further revision necessary. Therefore it has been decided to re-write the entire book to the end that it may be brought up to date in various matters and that numerous modifications may be made in the text. The size of the volume has been increased by adding to the size and the number of the pages. Nimierous changes and additions have been made throughout the book, but the most of the entirely new matter will be found in the chapter on Plain Concrete and in the three new chapters on Reinforced Concrete, Concrete Building-B locks, andE lastic A rch, and also in connection with the new structures illustrated. The number of structures described has been materially increased, and it is believed that those presented represent the latest practice of leading engineers.
