Abstract:
The construction of the new buildings of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology represents one of the most comprehensive schemes, for an educational institution, that has been developed in this country. The main subject of this paper is the structural features of the work, more especially the engineering studies and investifations that determined them. In connection with a general description of the layout of the work, however, the more interesting construction details are taken up.
