RECOMMENDED STANDARD PRACTICES FOR STRUCTURAL TESTING OF STEEL MODELS

A panel for standard practice for testing was set up in 1973 by the DOE-TRRL working group on long term research into steel box girder bridges. The working group recommended that the panel's report should be published as a TRRL report so that the panel's recommendations could be given a wider circulation among research organisations and others concerned with the testing of structural models representing steel box girder construction. The report discusses practical problems of testing and gives recommendations for good practice under the following headings: (I) material properties; (II) initial deformations and residual stresses; (III) loading procedures for structural tests; (IV) scale factor. /Author/TRRL/
