An Experimental lnvestigation of the Behaviour of Mild Steel Compression Members in Light Lattice Frameworks

Design of light lattice girders and trusses composed of structural steel angles is commonly based on the recommendations of B.S.S.449-1948. Tension members forming such girders are designed to comply with clauses 39 and 40 of the specification and experimental research has indicated that members proportioned in accordance with these clauses give calculated yield loads which agree closely with the measured loads.
