Factors Influencing the Design of Thin Walled Columns

In recent years the progress of structural engineering has been accelerated by the shortage of certain types of building materials caused by war, necessitating the full use of the natural ingenuity of structural engineers in finding substitutes and by the progress of allied structural fields such as the aircraft industry. Scarcity of timber brought into use light structural sections ; shortage of labour and the requirements of speedier erection, prefabrication. Higher power units in the aircraft industry demanded a more efficient design and the full use of light alloy sections. C.M. Moir and R.M. Kenedi
