Aluminium Strut Design

Abstract In the new Report on the Structural Use of Aluminium, which will be published in the near future by the Institution and which will supersede the 1950 report, recommendations are given for arriving at safe stresses in the principal types of structural members. This paper summarises the background of knowledge that has led up to the clauses dealing with struts. The three basic modes of failure (column, torsional and local buckling) are studied, and simplified procedures are presented for application to some of the more standard shapes of section. J. B.
