THE PRESIDENT welcomed the visitors to the meeting, and introduced the authors.
The paper describes an experimental investigation into the structural behaviour of a particular type of bolted beam-column connexion, in which the connexion consists of a plate welded to the end of a beam and fastened to the flanges of the column by pretensioned high strength bolts. Some recommendations are made as to the plastic design of the component parts of such an assembly and general conclusions are drawn which may affect the plastic design of many types of bolted connexions.
The paper reviews the methods of predicting the settlement of structures on spread footings and piled foundations. It reports settlement observations on structures and model tests. Reference is made to the stiffness of the structure and its effect on settlement. The limits of permissible settlement to prevent cracking or damage are discussed.
