Automation in the Fabrication and Design of Welded Beams, Girders and Columns

The introduction of new automatic welding plants, which can deal with sections up to 3.8 m deep and weights up to 50 t, happens to coincide with the completion of work on methods of producing optimum design for welded plate girders. The paper describes the operation of the plant and the methods available for obtaining optimum designs. R. Stainsby
