Quality Manual for Steel Bridge Fabrication

This research proposes to combine academic literature as well as unpublished research, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) personnel and fabricator interviews, plus experimental investigations to recommend a tiered quality system with specific limits that can be used by GDOT and industry to determine the appropriate path for fabricated steel components with the most relevant nonconformance issues. Specifically, the goal of this research is to provide guidance (i.e., a quality manual) to classify common fabrication-related nonconformance issues into three categories: accept without repairs, accept with repairs, and reject. The objective of this project is to develop a detailed GDOT Quality Manual for Steel Bridge Fabrication.
