AD 421: Design responsibility for welds in fabricated plate girders
In recent months the SCI has received a number of questions about responsibility for the design of the welds
between the web and flanges of a plate girder
. These longitudinal welds are an integral part of the member design – and should therefore be sized by the engineer responsible for the design
of the beam.
