JOINT BARS: DESIGN, SPECIFICATIONS, SERVICE TESTS, INCLUDING INSULATED JOINTS AND COMPROMISE JOINTS

Rolling-load and physical-property tests of basic-oxygen-steel joint bars, rolling-load and bend tests of three compromise joints produced by thermit welding, and a rolling-load test of an insulated joint using fiber-glass bars were investigated. Much of the work was still in progress at the time of publication. Brinell and Mechanical tests of four bars failing the rolling-load tests were tabulated and show that three of these bars were slightly harder at the top than at the bottom.
