    This paper, which is Part II of this series on wide-plate testing of weldments, reviews various wide-plate test specimen designs in relation to their intended uses. In addition, some specimen designs are discussed which are recommended for particular structural details that cannot be modeled by means of a flat uniaxial wide-plate test. Further, the preparation and testing of wide-plate specimens are reviewed. Finally, consideration is given to certain aspects of the weldment test procedure and to the interpretation and significance of wide-plate test results.
