Girder had web plate thinner than that required under present design specifications for testing web-buckling phenomenon and diagonal-tension phenomenon of web plate under load; comparison between computed buckling loads and values determined from experimental data; loading beyond conventionally termed buckling load; change in shear-carrying behavior of web after buckling occurred.
