Folded Plate Construction : An Investigation of Collapse Conditions

Stressed skin construction of the folded plate type is not used to any great extent in Great Britain, and one reason for this may be the lengthy calculations at present used in design. The paper anticipates the possibility of design on an ultimate load basis and describes an investigation into the collapse conditions of small roof structures in reinforced concrete. A. R. Dykes
