Optimization of Rib-to-Deck Welds for Steel Orthotropic Bridge Decks

APPENDIX A. SECTIONING OF PANELS INTO SPECIMENS

Figure 49 through figure 62 in this appendix show how individual panels were cut into specimens for the first series of panels that were machined at TFHRC. In the later stages of the project, the fabricator was paid to section the panels with a bandsaw, and it is presumed that specimens were ordered sequentially along the length of the panel.
