The experiments reported are residual stress measurements and tension coupon tests. The influence of the manufacturing procedure on the formation of residual stress was investigated. This thesis presents the results of an investigation on a heavy welded box shape. The theoretical part deals with the prediction of the maximum strength of box columns. A computer program was developed to compute maximum strength curves.
