In a previous paper the plastic behaviour of a practical hollow rectangular section was investigated, and graphs were presented from which the section’s ultimate resistance could be evaluated under the combined effect of biaxial bending and axial force. A procedure was also suggested by which the additional presence of an axial torque could be accounted for.
After a successful career in structural engineering it may be worthwhile to look back and try to analyse the origin of this success, and to offer some of my experience to coming generations of engineers.
The Study Group was formed in 1970, when considerable interest was being shown in carbon fibres by most branches of the engineering profession.
