‘Mr. Chairman, ladies and Gentlemen’. ‘It is with humility and profound diffidence that I stand before you today-a foreigner who has found a second motherland, who was admitted without stint or reservations as one of its sons and raised to the pinnacle of one of its great Chartered Institutions. It is a rare if not a unique occasion.' O.A. Kerensky

Practical Limits to Loadings and Strength and their Effects on Safety

Practical Limits to Loadings and Strength and their Effects on Safety

The strength and loading statistics used as a background to structural safety measures in design are commonly expressed by frequency distributions in mathematical form. This paper points out that the more relevant parts of frequency distributions-the lower tails of strength curves and the upper tails of loading curves-are in practice limited or truncated. The effects of this are illustrated by a bridge example, using a numerical procedure to deal with the non-mathematical frequency curves involved. The value of proof tests on structures and of controls over their loading is demonstrated. Sir Alfred Pugsley

Fatigue Tests of A441-A36 Hybrid Plate Girders

Fatigue Tests of A441-A36 Hybrid Plate Girders

This paper presents the results of an investigation intended to obtain fatigue data for hybrid plate girders and to determine their fatigue strength at two million cycles. Fatigue tests were conducted on six welded hybrid plate girders with flanges of A441 steel and webs of A36 steel. Web slenderness ratios of 144 and 192 were investigated. A sequential test programme was devised to determine the maximum permissible stress range that will give a life of two million cycles. A. Anthony Toprac and David J. Fielding
