Load Testing of Concrete Building Structures

Following a discussion of the role of load testing in the structural appraisal of construction and of the philosophy of load testing, this paper examines recent experience of load testing of concrete floors and roofs in existing buildings in relation to the recommendations contained in BS Code of practice CP l10 The structural use of concrete. Techniques of testing building structures on site are discussed briefly. Suggestions are made for modifications to present procedures and techniques. J.B. Menzies
