The paper on the "Strength of Concrete Forms," presented by Mr. H.S. Taft before the 1915 convention of the American Concrete Institute (Journal, February, 1915), must have been received by its members with a great deal of interest. It showed considerable time and thought spent in its preparation. I propose to discuss some of the points by describing the methods and endeavor to stimulate further interest and study by describing the methods used in handling form work by the company with which the writer is connected.
