MUCH has been written for and against welded construction, but it must be admitted that for field repair work it is easier to renew a strut or longeron which may be riveted or bolted in place. On the other hand the repair at depot is often easier with a welded structure if the design provides for renewal of damaged members by cutting out the old and butt‐welding in the new tubes.
