Pagination or Media Count:
This report is concerned with an experimental evaluation of the behavior of plated grillages under the simultaneous action of a uniform normal pressure and axial compression. The combination of loads was gradually increased so as to produce large plastic deformation, the aim being to obtain an estimate of the collapse strength of the grillage. The test procedure is described and conclusions are drawn regarding the behavior of the longitudinals, the transversals, and the plating. Difficulties in the tests arising from local crippling of the stiffeners are also discussed.
