The Plastic Design of Latticed Portal Frames

The Paper describes the design and development of a range of prefabricated steel-framed single storey portal buildings. Rafters are of tubular lattice construction, while universal beam sections are used for the columns. Plastic theory is applied to obtain a load factor design of the portal frames. B. H. Fisher, Jacques Heyman and L. G. Jaeger
