This paper introduces CUBIC space frames and describes a method based on elastic theory for their simple, yet accurate, analysis.
A method has recently been proposed for the design of unbraced, multistorey steel frames to limiting values of horizontal deflection. It is shown that this permits an approximate value for the lowest elastic critical load to be quickly calculated. Study of a typical frame demonstrates that in many cases the result can be expected to be sufficiently accurate for use in design.
ISE or ICE, a difference
As befits the journal of a learned society, scanning of the galleys by the editors is
meticulous; nevertheless, with such a small staff, the occasional slip escapes attention, as evinced by our own gaffe, for which we apologised in May. In that same issue Mr A. S. Crockett found his literary sensibilities shocked by an exercise in
‘licence’ with spelling which he clearly considers ought not to be practised’. He
writes: I have been following the responses to Finniston by the Civils, Municipals, and
Structurals very closely, not least because of being a member of the Council of the
Municipals and a member of the President’s Advisory Committee which has dealt at considerable length with the report itself and the responses thereto from the Institutions.
