This week is all about testing. Since the beginning, all standard truss series are tested on a regular basis to see if the theory still meets the practice. In the pictures, you see the result of a test done back in 1999.
The Strength of the truss was tested with a load measurement device. It was clear to see if a truss could handle the maximum allowable load according to the structural calculations. As well as the maximum allowable deflection was measured. In the pictures, you see when a truss was pulled in an overload situation and plastic deformation started to occur. Don’t try this at home!
