    Abstract

    In the process of fabricating specimens for a fatigue investigation, we found that the panels had a systematic thickness and density variation. Because this could bias test results, we conducted an experimental study to assess the consequences of the observed variability within the panels. Moreover, we obtained data on the effect of specimen width on the static strength.
