The Design of Steel Frames

Between 1929 and 1936 a comprehensive investigation of the behaviour of steel structures was made for the Steel Structures Research Committee. A summary of the work is given together with a short account of the Design Recommendations made. This design method was not popular and the conclusion was reached that the elastic behaviour of a redundant structure is too complicated to form the basis of a simpler rational method. An investigation of the behaviour of structures in the plastic range up to collapse was therefore begun in the hope that a more acceptable rational method of design would result. Professor J.F. Baker
