Steel roof structure load testing

The roof structure of a meeting room was insufficient for a new ceiling load requirement according to the FEM analysis. Thus, strengthening solution was provided, and a load test was carried out to verify the safety of the structure as this is a very important meeting room of an international organization. As a result, the strengthened roof now satisfies the new load system. Water barrels were used as load application to the roof, and the dynamic data logging system was used to capture displacement of the critical members.
