The purpose of this research was to describe the behavior of mechanically fastened built-up girders in a partially failed condition. This was achieved by testing large-scale riveted and high-strength bolted built-up specimens to determine their fracture resilience at low temperatures and their fatigue capacity after a single component was failed. Additionally, a finite element parametric study was performed to understand the behavior of built-up girders and to better describe the load distribution that occurs locally in the region adjacent to a failed component.
