A factory floor was first investigated to verify whether the floor slab is on pile or on ground. Then the load test was conducted to justify the load carrying capacity. Oil barrels were used as load application and placed on the test are by forklifts. Load magnitude per agreement was taken to be equivalent […]
Several types and different configurations of anchor bolts were tested for pullout and shear. First of all, M24 and M27 bolts used to support 3 advertisement boards with dimension of 12 m long and 5.65 m height each were tested under both pullout and shear. The pullout and shear loads were measured and plotted against […]
The Load Carrying cCapacity Analysis is used to determine the capacity of the analyzed members or structures to determine whether the tested structures can carry the given load condition or how much load they can withstand. This analysis is necessary when the design details are missing or when there is uncertainty in the design or construction.
RE conducted the Chemical Anchor Pull Out Test. This chemical anchor was installed on the floor as moment-resisting support of the new column. Thus, this chemical anchor must be able to resist tension force according to the design. In this case, proof load according to the design was applied. Test frames, load cells, displacement transducers, and the data acquisition system were used.
RE conducted a load test on a ground slab in a factory on Suksawat road, Samut Prakan. In the design point of view, a ground slab is normally designed using the linear spring distribution support assumption. However, in reality, a ground slab often experiences nonlinear behavior. The slab on ground load test project was deemed necessary when there was a plan for new production line machines to be installed.
