At the last Annual Convention of the Institute, the Committee on Nomenclature submitted a report which included a preliminary list of definitions of the more common terms used in concrete work. There were a number of criticisms of these definitions on the floor of the convention, and in accordance with such criticisms and some later correspondence, the committee revised the list of definitions to the form which was presented in the April, 1915, Journal of the Institute. Since the publication of that number, there has been received but one communication from a member of the Insititute. After consideration of this communication, the committee begs to leave to submit the following revision of the previous list of conditions.
