Omer Blodgett on weldments

At work I have a copy of Omer Blodgett's Design of Weldments. I occasionally refer to it when designing weldments. I have found it quite useful because it stresses developing a mental image of the flow of loads in welded structures. It helps to develop a way of thinking about weldment design beyond just presenting formulas, though it has those too.

Omer Blodgett has a column, "Blodgett's Basics," in Welding Design & Fabrication magazine. I have found it worthwhile reading. His columns can be found here.
