Abstract : It is known that certain welded details adversely affect the fatigue life of bridge members. The utility and feasibility of steel to steel adhesive bonded c%nnections as substitutes for such details is evaluated. Large scale fatigue tests indicated that adhesives can perform structural functions equal to those of welds without decreasing the fatigue life of beams.
