Having recently carried out two years' research in a similar field, I read the above report with interest, and would like to make the following comments.
Computer simulated tests on axially loaded, pin ended, welded steel columns are reported. The tests took account of strain-hardening, initial lack of straightness and a variety of residual stress distributions and magnitudes. Design curves for light to medium column sections are suggested.
