Load Transfer Tests
The load transfer from anchorages of tendons or stay cables to the structure is assessed in load transfer tests, in accordance with the client’s specifications, which are usually based on guidelines such as ETAG 013, EAD 160004-00-0301, FIP and others. As required by these guidelines, both the strains on the concrete and the crack widths are measured during the test.
Our Specific Testing Capabilities are:
- Maximum load: 20 MN
- Maximum stroke: 400 mm
- Maximum base area of test object: 1.5 m × 1.5 m
- Maximum loading rate: 40 kN/s
