Panels - Wall segments
Norma Chilena NCh 801:2016 Elementos de Construcción - Segmentos de muro - Ensayo de compresión (Chilean Standard NCh 801:2016 - Construction elements - Wall segments - Compression test) (16 pages, in Spanish)
The notified Standard establishes the test method for determining the behaviour and compression resistance of wall segments commonly used in construction. The procedures described in this Standard seek to reproduce load conditions that are representative of those applicable to the segments when in use. The method entails subjecting test pieces to compression loads that are increased gradually in load and unload cycles to measure the deformation caused.
