FATIGUE BEHAVIOR OF STEEL BEAMS WITH FILLET|WELDED ATTACHMENTS

Short, horizontally placed plates are frequently welded to beam or girder webs for the purpose of attaching horizontal bracing. In the presence of fluctuating load, this type of detail will influence the allowable fatigue stress range. Current North American specifications have included this detail on the basis of judgement only. The tests reported herein examine the fatigue life of such a detail, including both the influence of the detail and the effect of attaching the bracing members. (TRRL)
