Abstract

Static test results of two full-scale unsymmetrical plate girder specimens are used for the analysis of the web stresses which are expected to develop in a girder under repeated loading. The significance of these stresses for the fatigue life of unsymmetrical plate girders is evaluated on the basis of an approximate S-N relationship previously obtained for symmetrical girders.
