The Failure Load of Rigid Jointed Frameworks as Influenced by Stability

Stanchions have been used for a long time as component members of rigid framed structures. At present they are designed by analogy with the behaviour of isolated stanchions. This method is open to criticism and obscures the action of a stanchion as a part of a structure. This paper advances arguments that the structure itself instead of its component parts be designed by analogy with an isolated stanchion. W. Merchant
