Design and Construction of Welded Portal Frame Warehouse Building Designed by the Plastic Method

This paper briefly describes the design and construction of a simple portal frame building, for which the steel framework was designed by the plastic method. Figures are given to show the economy achieved in the usage of steel over that which might have been used had the framework been designed by elastic methods, and the simple construction of the connections between the rafter and column members is illustrated.
