A couple years ago my office did a load test on a floor by filling the room with water. A membrane was used to contain the 2 to 3 feet of water that was used. The floor was shored and instrumentation was used to measure deflections. The test was also video taped. ---------- From: W. Gray Hodge[SMTP:hda(--nospam--at)evansville.net] Sent: Wednesday, May 20, 1998 7:30 AM To: SEAOC Listservice Subject: Load Testing I am working on the renovation of an existing structure and the Owner has expressed an interest in performing a load test to verify the load carrying capacity for a portion of the structure. My question is this: Is there an ASTM or other industry standard which defines how such a test should be performed? Does anyone else have experience in load testing - are there any "do's" or "don'ts"? Thanks for your help.
