Document Type: Journal Paper


An experimental investigation of the structural action of three aluminum folded plate models is presented. Tests were conducted on a single-span structure with simply supported ends, a single-span structure with overhangs at each end, and a two-span, continuous structure with simply-supported ends. A comparison is made between the experimental and theoretical values of longitudinal stresses and transverse moments.
