Load Testing of Hollow Plank Concrete Floors

This paper describes a programme of work on the testing of hollow plank floor systems under static loads. Particular issues addressed include the need to estimate the transverse load distribution in a floor during a test, and the scope for extrapolation of behaviour from the results of tests carried out at lower loads. The research described focuses on these aspects and leads to specific recommendations for load testing of hollow plank floors. R.M. Moss
