Optistruct Lessons Learned from a Cambered Structure with Welds made Post-Decambering using Modchg

Problem Description
- A pre-cambered trailer is loaded to nearly flat under 1g down by a permanent payload (large steel transformer oil reservoir box).
- As the payload is loaded, the trailer is 'de-cambered." They payload is then welded in place to the trailer.
- Other operational load cases are
