In a unssuported compresion flange for a simple span girder (bridge) if
transverse stiffener,,joined to a stringer,is used to stabilize the
compresion flange. Should the transverse stiffener be welded to the tension
flange wheter the fatige category at the stiffener weld termination is still
AASHTO fatigue category C?
