Correspondence. Curved Bridges - and why they should be Welded

Sir, In your issue of August, 1949, No. 8, I found a report of a discussion on Dr. H. Gottfeldt’s paper, “Curved Bridges-and why they should be welded.” From this report I learned that during the discussion the author and Mr. Cadwell expressed some apprehensions as to certain details of a Swedish curved steel bridge mentioned in Dr. Gottfeldt’s paper. Being responsible for the design of this bridge, which belongs to the Swedish State Railways, I feel obliged to inform you that the remarks seem to be based on misunderstandings and incomplete information.
