Abstract:
The objective of this session is to present recent developments in load testing of existing concrete structures, with an emphasis on differences and similarities between monotonic and cyclic load testing. The presentations will highlight interesting load testing case studies, review lessons learned during testing, review the process of designing load tests, and provide information regarding best practices when load testing.
