Single-Element Station

SBCRI's Single-Element Station (SES) is a medium-scale testing station that allows for the testing of single elements, and even some small assemblies (belying its name), up to 4’ wide x 12’ deep x 24’ long. The load actuators and load cells allow for the application of up to 58,000 pounds of load.

Testing can be done on this station under the following standards:

  • ASTM A931 – Standard Test Method for Tension Testing of Wire Ropes and Strand
  • ASTM A1023/A1023 M – Standard Specification for Stranded Carbon Steel Wire Ropes for General Purposes
  • ASTM C165 – Standard Test Method for Measuring Compressive Properties of Thermal Insulations
  • ASTM C203 – Standard Test Method for Breaking Load and Flexural Properties of Block Type Thermal Insulation
  • 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 D143 – Standard Test Methods for Small Clear Specimens of Timber
  • ASTM D198 – Standard Test Methods of Static Tests of Lumber in Structural Sizes
  • ASTM D1037 – Standard Test Methods for Evaluating Properties of Wood Base Fiber and Particle Panel Materials
  • ASTM D1761 – Standard Test Methods for Mechanical Fasteners in Wood
  • ASTM D3043 – Standard Test Methods for Structural Panels in Flexure
  • ASTM D3500 – Standard Test Methods for Structural Panels in Tension

  • ASTM D5764 – Standard Test Method for Evaluating Dowel Bearing Strength of Wood and Wood Based Products
  • ASTM D7147 – Standard Specification for Testing and Establishing Allowable Loads of Joist Hangers
  • ASTM E8 – Standard Test Methods for Tension Testing of Metallic Materials
  • 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
