Current Information on Constraint-Induced Fractures and Intersecting Welds [B25]

The Federal Highway Administration recently produced a report intended to clarify misconceptions about intersecting welds and constraint-induced fracture. We'll explain which factors actually contribute to an elevated risk of constraint-induced fracture in steel girder bridges and which don't. We'll also review the history of steel beam fractures and how these may or may not be classified as constraint-induced fractures.
