I HOPE you realise that I do not intend to read a paper; I merely wish to take advantage of this opportunity to show you some slides, and to add a few comments. Almost all of the slides refer to settlement of foundations, and the comments (led essentially with the effect of the settlement on the factor of safety of the buildings.
Professor Dr. Ing. K. Von Terzaghi
IN determining which branch of structural engineering should be treated in this paper,
cognisance was taken of the fact that during the last few months, several requests have
been made for information regarding roof trusses which have been fabricated and erected
by means of welding. It seemed, therefore, that the subject would be of sufficient interest to members to be given here, especially as the introduction to welded construction might be made more easily by way of welding roof trusses, and by incorporating them into other forms of construction until experience of the process has been gained, when further portions or the whole structure, could be undertaken with confidence.
