DIAGNOSTIC LOAD TESTING USING OUR STRUCTURAL TESTING SYSTEMS

What is a Diagnostic Load Test?

A DIAGNOSTIC LOAD TEST IS WHERE WE INSTALL INSTRUMENTATION ON A STRUCTURE, COLLECT DATA UNDER A CONTROLLED SHORT-TERM LIVE LOAD WITH OUR TURN-KEY STRUCTURAL TESTING SYSTEM, AND THEN WE REMOVE THE INSTRUMENTATION. WE CAN TYPICALLY CONDUCT A DIAGNOSTIC LOAD TEST IN ONE OR TWO DAYS!

The resulting data can be used to verify your predictions or for calibrating a finite element model for determining accurate load ratings.
