Correspondence on Comparative Costs of Single-Storey Steel Framed Structures

Dr. N. G. Bunni: The paper is a very interesting one. It provides some useful information to the design engineer on comparative costs of structural steelwork in the form of portal frames, lattice girders, trusses, and space frames, incorporating the nodus jointing system. Where space frames are concerned, however, an impression is given that those frames incorporating the nodus jointing system are typical of all space frames in respect of cost, weight, and size. (See last paragraph of p177, the legend in Fig l, the comment made in para.2 of p178, and later in item (g) on p181.) J.F. Horridge and L.J. Morris
