The Use of Arc Welding in Structural Engineering

The structural industry was one of the early users of electric arc welding and there are many examples which date back to the 1920’s. Its use increased steadily until the Second World War, but it was during the war and in this post war period that the greatest increase in its application has taken place. It has now become one of the leading methods of fabrication and welded work, as a percentage of the total structural production in this country, rivals all other methods. Indeed, in many structural fields, for example rigid frames and structures designed by the plastic theory, it is now the only method of fabrication in use. J.S. Allen
