The Elastic Lateral Stability of Trusses. Written Discussion on the Paper by M. R. Horne, Sc.D., A.M.I.C.E.

Mr. A. N. PROCTER (Member) Dr. M. R. Horne’s contribution on the elastic stability of pony-type trusses contains many points of interest. He has shown how energy equations may be used to obtain approximate solutions of complex problems. The use of welded tubes for this type of construction is aptly chosen. There is plenty of scope for alternative methods to which brief reference has been made.
