"This investigation has been prompted, first, by a desire to become more familiar with concrete-steel in its general application to engineering construction, second, by the inevitable necessity of a substitute in the near future for lumber in mining construction. In first case, a thorough review has been made of principles and practice in the construction of concrete-steel structures in general, including bridges, water towers, reservoirs, viaducts, etc., as found in current engineering journals, which is the most up-to-date source of information available. Special attention has been given to best practice in reinforcing concrete to resist forces of bending, shearing, torsion and crushing"--page 1.
