Design, model analysis and testing of an 83-ft span interconnected portal grillage

An interconnected two-way grillage of portal frames spanning 82 ft 6 in. with a height above foundation level of 35 ft was adopted for the main boiler room of a new heat generating station for a precinct heating scheme in Bristol. The framework was designed in reinforced concrete and had to sustain a loading of approximately 1000 tons. Derek Bond
