A Simple Method of Designing Steel Beams According to the Recommendations of the Steel Structures Research Committee

In the Final Report of the Steel Structures Research Committee1 recommendations for the design of beams are made (p. 547). The basis of the recommendations is explained in a paper in the same report by Professor Batho (p. 364) which also gives a more exact and fundamental method of determining the allowable end moments on loaded beams. Both methods are based upon experimental results concerning the relation between bending moment) and angular deformation of end connections. The connections are divided into four classes according to their degree of rigidity and minimum requirements are specified for each class. S.D. Lash
