You won't develop membrane stresses unless you have a very stiff member at the edges to react the loads. The corner weld cracks and bowed (they didn't buckle) side plates are evidence of under design or abuse. Chances are excellent that you'll need to replace the corner welds. It sounds like it's just beat to death--I bet you'll get away a cheaper by just replacing the thing.
