Modular Testing Bays

SBCRI’s Modular Testing Bays provide the ultimate in flexibility as they are customizable testing areas where load actuators and load cells can be moved and adjusted to apply loads in any configuration and orientation.  From two-story structures to small assemblies, these bays allow for cutting-edge, full-system testing.

Testing can be done on these stations under the following standards:

  • ASTM C293/C293 M – Standard Test Method for Flexural Strength of Concrete (Using Simple Beam with Center Point Loading)
  • ASTM C1609/1609 M – Standard Test Method for Flexural Performance of Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (Using Beam with Third Point Loading)
  • ASTM D3043 – Standard Test Methods for Structural Panels in Flexure
  • ASTM D3500 – Standard Test Methods for Structural Panels in Tension
  • ASTM D3501 – Standard Test Methods for Wood Based Structural Panels in Compression
  • ASTM E73 – Standard Practice for Static Load Testing of Truss Assemblies
  • ASTM E455 – Standard Test Method for Static Load Testing of Framed Floor or Roof Diaphragm Construction for Buildings
  • ASTM E894 – Standard Test Method for Anchorage of Permanent Metal Railing Systems and Rails for Buildings
  • ASTM E935 – Standard Test Methods for Performance of Permanent Metal Railing Systems and Rails in Buildings
  • ASTM E2127 – Standard Test Methods for Static Load Test for Combined Tensile and Transverse Load Resistance of Paneled Wall Systems in Building Construction
  • ASTM E2322 – Standard Test Method for Conducting Traverse and Concentrated Load Tests on Panels used in Floor and Roof Construction
  • TPI 2 – Standard for Testing Metal-Plate-Connected Wood Trusses
