Weld Quality Requirements for Castellated Beams

An experimental programme of work has been carried out involving load tests on lengths of British Standard castellated universal beams manufactured with different weld qualities. A supporting series of tensile and shear tests on different qualities of welded joint has also been carried out to enable the results to be extended to a range of different sizes of beams and thicknesses. S. Maalek and Professor F.M. Burdekin
