Onsite Load Testing of a System-Built Hollow-Plank Floor Assembly

This paper presents a case history of onsite load testing of structures. A hollow plank floor assembly contained within a 1960s low-rise housing unit was tested, and details are given of the preparation of the test area, the choice of instrumentation, and the test loading adopted.
