scope:

1.1 This test method covers the following procedures for determining the structural properties of segments of floor and roof constructions:

    Section
  Test Specimens 5
  Loading 6
  Deformation Measurements 7
  Report 8
  Precision and Bias 9
   Testing Floors  
  Transverse Load 10
  Concentrated Load 11
   Testing Roofs  
  Transverse Load 12
  Concentrated Load 13

1.2 This test method serves to evaluate the performance of floors and roofs panels subjected to (1) Uniform loading, and (2) Concentrated static loading, which represent conditions sustained in the actual performance of the element. The standard is not intended for the evaluation of individual structural framing or supporting members (floor joist, rafters, and trusses), or both.

1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables and figures, shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

1.4 This standard is not intended to cover concrete floor slabs.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
