Fully Rigid Multi-storey Welded Steel Frames. Discussion on the paper by F. A. Partridge BSc(Eng) MlStructE MlCE MlnstW

Introducing his paper, Mr. Partridge said there were one or two points that might be emphasized. The end product of the Joint Committee’s effort was, simply, a method that could be used in design offices to establish the beams and columns of a fully rigid building frame, the kind of frame so eminently suitable for welding. Judged as a solution to a problem of great complexity and compared with the many procedures investigated, the method could be said to embody simplicity and accuracy to a degree quite beyond earlier expectations-and even hopes. Its accuracy was vouched for by the research specialists on the Joint Committee. The meeting provided the opportunity for wider consideration of the value of the method in terms of its practical application and further development.
