Try TRADA in UK. They have conducted monotonic tests (load in one
direction) but may know if some in Europe are doing cyclic reversed load
tests. There is a CEN test under development for cyclic loading of
fasteners. Dr. Ario Ceccotti at one of the universities in Italy has
experience in cyclic load tests of shear walls.
