They are used for low-rise frames in which horizontal forces are not so high, or in beams where some end fixity is beneficial to the control of deflections.

2 Fabricated sections and tapered beams Fabricated girders are made by welding plates together to form Isections of uniform or asymmetrical cross-section. They are typically used for long-span primary beams or in transfer structures supporting a number of storeys over an open-plan ground-floor area. e. of linearly varying depth, so as to create zones for services near to the supports.
