Discussion on Connections in Structural Steelwork for Buildings by F.H. Needham

Dr. D. Tordoff (BCSA): We are all conscious of the fact that changes are taking place in design specifications and I should like to ask Mr Needham to comment on the changing philosophy of connection design with the introduction of limit state principles. Will a different design approach be required, and is there any research needed, or being undertaken currently, for a new design approach?
