Column research council: proceedings 1969


One of the purposes of the Council is to maintain a forum where problems related to the design and behavior of columns and other compression elements in metal structures can be presented for evaluation and discussion. The 1969 Annual Technical Session was held on April 1 and 2. This meeting was the 25th Anniversary meeting of the Council. The session took place at New York University, Bronx, in New York City. A special feature of this year's session was the panel discussion "The Structural Engineer looks at Column Design", which was intended to bring forward a discussion between practicing engineers and research workers on problems related to column design. Remarks by the Chairman, task group reports, the panel discussion and abstracts of the oral reports follow. The program of the session and the attendance list are contained in the appendix.
