The wrought iron which was the subject of this investigation was taken from Brunel's tubular bridge at Chepstow during its demolition in 1962, after 110 years of service.
In this paper the assumptions made in the existing methods of analysis of pitched roof frames are discussed. A general elastic-plastic analysis is then presented taking full account of instability due to joint translations as well as member curvature. An electronic digital computer programme to do the analysis is outlined and charts prepared using the analysis are given so that they may be used directly in the design of such frames.
