Report of the tests standing committee on the testing of reinforced concrete structures on completion

It is frequently specified that test loads should be applied to finished structures of reinforced concrete shortly after completion. It should be recognised, however, that such tests should in no wise reduce the care to be exercised in the supervision of the work by those responsible. Since the test loads are generally applied only to specific parts of the work, such tests do not necessarily prove that the work has been properly executed either in whole or in part.
