This paper is an extension of a paper by the same author published in The Structural Engineer for May 1968. Two aspects of the problem which were not dealt with
in the previous paper are treated.
Values of the critical combination of elastic buckling loads for prismatic columns, loaded with uniformly distributed axial loads acting in combination with an end load,
are presented. Numerical results for the four conventional boundary conditions are given in tabular and graphical form. Empirical relations are also suggested to facilitate interpolation of results.
This paper describes the planning and construction of the various buildings and structures forming the steelworking facilities backing up the shipbuilding operations
in the new shipbuilding dock at the famous Harland and Wolffs shipyard on Queen's Island,..Belfast. A general description of the various production Operations is given
