The Strength of Compression Members Discussion on Mr. Ewart S. Andrews' Paper

Mr. H. W. BRINKWORTH, referring to Fig. 1, drew attention to the statement (in the top right-hand corner) that the curve for Fidler’s formula (a) was worked to a stress of 20 tons per sq. in., and thc curve for Fidler’s formula (b) to 25 tons per sq. in. He asked if those figures should be reversed, because he could not quite understand why the curve was lower at the bigger ultimate stress.
