On a motion from the Chair, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the author for all the work he had done in preparing the paper, for having recorded his experiments and his results to the benefit of the profession, and for the interesting manner in which he had presented the paper.
In an earlier paper the authors described tests which they had carried out on a welded mild-steel plate girder, the overall dimensions of which were 20 ft. 9 in. long by
3 ft. 1 1/4 in. deep. This was a quarter-scale model of 12 ft. deep crane runway girders for the new Margam Steel plant at South Wales, and formed part of an investigation into the stress distribution in mild steel plate girders involving three further girders of similar size which have since been tested; two of welded and one of riveted construction.
