THE subject of welded structures in aircraft as compared with that of riveted ones necessarily affects two schools of designers. It is contended that under modern conditions and requirements the welded structure has definite merits over its rival, provided that it is tackled with the correct technique. Therefore it should be borne in mind that the welded structure must be designed for the process and not, as some designers suppose, be improvised for jobs where riveting or bolting was previously employed. Even with this limitation, there is great scope in many fields of metal construction for the use of welding.
