Abstract:
The recent and extensive development of reinforced-concrete construction has introduced a large number of new terms into the vocabulary of the engineering profession. These terms appear in reports, plans, specifications, periodical articles and textbooks. Since there is no definite and general understanding as to the meaning of these terms, confusion, ambiguities and misunderstandings have arisen which have led to disputes and litigations. Recent law-suits on "the belt course" and on "flat-slab construction" are matters of common knowledge.
