A Welded 100-ft. Aluminium Tower

This account covers the design, fabrication and testing of a tubular aluminium tower used to carry lighting projectors for the illumination of a marshalling yard at Bienne, Switzerland. It is concerned mainly with those problems encountered in the design and welding of aluminium structures and the behaviour of the erected tower. Cedric Marsh
