Failure Analysis and Prevention
This article illustrates the defects, which result because of poor-quality welds in the bridge components. The cracks resulting from the use of low fatigue strength details are also discussed. The article describes the effect of out-of-plane distortion in floor-beam-girder connection plates, multiple-girder diaphragm connection plate, and tied-arch floor beams.
