A Quick Approximation to the Critical Load of Rigidly Jointed Trusses

Engineers are rightly cautious in reviewing new techniques of structural design and indeed are sometimes regarded as being too conservative in their acceptance of the results of engineering research. It seems to the writer however that any further progress in the science of steelwork design can be only made on the basis of new assumptions. Arthur Bolton
