It is shown how the application of stressed skin principles can lead to more realistic and economical designs in steel structures. An outline is given of the method for analysing profiled steel diaphragms and complete stressed skin structures, and the necessary conditions for the safe use of diaphragm action are set out. The present position concerning Codes of Practice is summarised and several buildings which have been designed on stressed skin principles are described. Present developments in frameless steel structures are expected to lead to even greater economies. E.R. Bryan
