The development of an improved compression test method for wall panels: prepared for Division of Energy, Building Technology, and Standards, Office of Policy Development and Research, Department of Housing and Urban Development . [C W C Yancey; L E Cattaneo; United States. Division of Energy, Building Technology, and Standards.]. A compression test method applicable to traditional and innovative wall constructions is presented. The principal additions in the revised test method are as follows: (1) a provision for variable eccentricity, and (2) a procedure for selecting a load distribution assembly which will be compatible with the test panel. The proposed method will later be qualified against the standard test methods. DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMPROVED METHOD Test fixture design The proposed new method, referred to as the ICSTM (Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine) method in the following, uses a specimen configuration similar to the modified ASTM D specimen; that is a tabbed specimen which is Cited by: Compressive testing and analysis of plastered straw bales Stephen Vardy1, Colin MacDougall2 allowing the wall to act as a composite sandwich panel. 3 Figure 1: Simplified typical wall details. creates a lack of consistency in test methods, and a wide range of reported test results.

Compression after impact (CAI) testing provides a measure of damage tolerance. The CAI test is usually conducted on a rectangular laminate panel. The test consists of two parts: First, the panel is clamped around the periphery and then subjected to a controlled impact in the center of the panel (A drop tower is required to provide the impact). Significance and Use. These test methods cover small-specimen tests for wood-base fiber and particle panel materials that are made to provide: Data for comparing the mechanical and physical properties of various materials, Data for determining the influence on the basic properties of such factors as raw material and processing variables. side wall panels, and the bottom figure (b) represents the distribution after buckling of the side wall panels.

According to panels’ usage and load type, the following tests may need to be. conducted: wall panels transverse load test, wall panels axial load test, wall panels racking shear. tests, roof and floor panels uniform load test, and roof and floor concentrated load test. Meanwhile, use of the Combined Loading Compression test method is increasing rapidly. The fixture is relatively small (10 lb) and inexpensive, easy to use and favorably combines loading modes. This often permits the use of simple untabbed, straight-sided specimens, and very reliable results are usually obtained. A compression test is a method for determining the behavior of materials under a compressive load. Compression tests are conducted by loading the test specimen between two plates, and then applying a force to the specimen by moving the crossheads together. During the test, the specimen is compressed, and deformation versus the applied load is.
