Conducting Strength Tests of Panels for Building Construction

 
The procedures described are those that will test the behavior of segments of wall construction under conditions representative of those encountered in service. Performance criteria based on data from those procedures can ensure structural adequacy and service life. These test methods cover procedures for determining the structural properties of segments of wall, floor, and roof constructions.
