ASTM E455 – Standard Test Method for Static Load Testing of Framed Floor or Roof Diaphragm Constructions for Buildings
This test method covers procedures designed to evaluate the static shear capacity of a typical segment of a framed diaphragm under simulated loading conditions, and to provide a determination of the stiffness of the construction and its connections.
A diaphragm construction is an assembly of materials designed to transmit shear forces in the plane of the construction.
