TENTATIVE FORM OF LICENSE FOR PRIVATE ROAD

CROSSING E. L. TAYLOR, Chairman, Sub-Committee. The work assigned to Sub-Committee was: (a) Submit form of agreement for private road crossing. (b) Submit form of agreement for purchase of electricity.

1. It was understood that Sub-Committee would prepare a form of agreement for private road crossings which would be suitable for crossings over, under or at grade.

The Sub-Committee prepared such a form and it was submitted to the General Committee at its December meeting. The form recommended by the Sub-Committee was substantially satisfactory with a few minor changes but there was so much divergence of opinion on the liability clause that it was deemed best not to submit final form and to carry it over for further consideration next year. Progress report form submitted below.

2. Sub-Committee prepared tentative form of agreement for purchase of electricity but it was decided to hold it over until next year for submission to the Committee on Electricity, as their opinions and suggestions are desirable and necessary.

Committee.

To the American Railway Engineering Association:

The Committee presents reports on subjects 1, 3, 6 and 7.

Subject 2: On the subject of Design of Concrete and Reinforced Concrete Structures as developed by the Joint Committee on Concrete and Reinforced Concrete, no recommendations are made at this time.

The tentative report has been reviewed and certain suggestions made to the Joint Committee, but the Specification for Design is now in the discussion stages and it is possible changes may be made. In view of the condition the Committee does not think it advisable to make recommendations at this time.

Subject 4: A questionnaire was issued by the Sub-Committee, regarding failures of concrete structures, and many answers are being received which are being tabulated and a report will be issued next year.

Subject 5: There seems to be a lack of reliable information on this subject of the distribution of loads through ballast and embankment as affecting the design of masonry structures, and the Sub-Committee having this in charge is recommending that it be continued with the expectation that experimental data will become available the coming year.

Subject 6: A "Progress Report of the Joint Commiteee on Standard Specifications for Concrete and Reinforced Concrete” has been submitted in pamphlet form to the membership for discussion. (See Appendix E.)

CONCLUSIONS

Your Committee recommends the following action be taken on its report:

1. That the following requirement as it appears in the 1921 Manual, covering a variation in fineness of cement, be omitted and the remaining paragraphs renumbered. (See Appendix A.)

Permissible Variation.

36. A permissible variation of 1 will be allowed, and all results in excess of the specified limit, but within this permissible variation shall be reported as 22 per cent.

2. That the revisions and additions as they appear in Appendix A be issued as a supplement to the Specifications for Plain and Reinforced Concrete and for Steel Reinforcement as it appears in the Manual.

3. That Appendix B be received as information. 4. That Appendix C be received as information.

5. That the recommendations of the Committee as they appear in Appendix D be approved as the outline of work for the ensuing year.

Respectfully submitted,
The COMMITTEE ON MASONRY,

J. J.' YATES, Chairman.
