Document Type: Book - Proceedings


This technical symposium illustrates the various aspects of transfer of information from research results to engineering practice. The papers cover historical technical background, current engineering practice, and possible future directions of activity pertaining to design and behavior of metal structures. Specific topics covered include fatigue damage assessment of welded steel structures, fatigue-proofing cover plate ends, effect of peening on fatigue life of welded details, behavior of steel columns, high strength bolting, analytical models for steel connections, structural steel failures, performance of strengthened highway bridges, and an evaluation of the AASHTO fracture control plan. A bibliography of the writings of W. H. Munse is also included.

Subject Headings: Steel columns | Steel structures | Structural behavior | High-strength steel | Steel bridges | Steel plates | Engineering profession | Fatigue life
