Post tensioning Slab Load Testing

A building under construction experienced cracks on its post-tensioned slab. The structural capacity was questionable for a designed live load of 400 kg/m2 and a super imposed dead load of 250 kg/m2. Thus, a load test was conducted to determine the actual floor capacity.

Slab on ground Load Testing

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.
