The art of built up members of A-7 steel. Your idea that they are used inside between the top and bottom angles is correct. Concern regarding l/r ratios of plates in compression and rivet stitching made use of "filler" plates so that the rivet length variations could be minimized. My last riveted bridge job was for the Washington-DOT across the Columbia and Astoria, Oregon. Each was an adventure in living and surviving.
