Testing – Methodology

Our 40' x 90' strong floor provides a great deal of testing flexibility, and the ability to test:

  • Standard design loads on a single component
  • Drag and shear loads on a single component
  • Standard design loads on a component system
  • Drag and shear loads on a component system both parallel and perpendicular to the components
  • Unbalanced and bidirectional wind loads
  • Simulated wind uplift loads
  • Cyclic loading at application points from the foundation to the peak of the roof
  • Any point loading condition that a building could possibly have applied to it
  • Loading applied in three axis simultaneously, to simulate both construction and environmental loads

To get a good sense on how we go about conducting our testing, here's our standard approach.
