Abstract:
In taking up the various systems of concrete steel construction the name Francois Monier, a French gardener, stands pre-eminent as the pioneer in this field, while to Hennibique in France and Ransome in the United States due credit should be given as leaders among the early pioneers in this line of work. To Armand Considere belongs the credit of the invention of the safest and most conservative type of column design, that is the hooped and vertically reinforced column.
