SERVICE TESTS OF VARIOUS TYPES OF JOINT BARS CRANES. STUDY OF THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF BOX-BEAMS SEALED WITH DIAPHRAGMS SUBJECTED TO CONSTANT AMPLITUDE AXIAL

Report is made of two service tests of joint bars for 115 RE and 132 RE rail. Service test installations are described, and test data is presented. It is concluded after 10 years of service that the test sections show good performance with little difference except that the 4-hole bars show slightly more difference in the level at the 1/4-inch points of the rail ends. The long-toe bars on the Santa Fe continue to show a slight tendency toward developing cracks in the spike slits, although the progression is slow.
