Panels - Wall segments
Norma Chilena NCh 802:2017 Elementos de Construcción - Segmentos de muro - Ensayo de carga horizontal (Chilean Standard NCh 802:2017 - Construction elements - Wall segments - Horizontal load test) (14 pages, in Spanish)
The notified Standard establishes the test method for determining the behaviour and resistance of wall segments by submitting them to a horizontal load contained on the plane and applied to the top edge thereof. The edge conditions aim to determine behaviour in response to the cutting of the test piece. The Standard also establishes the test method for determining the behaviour and resistance of wall segments submitted to a horizontal load contained on the plane, where the edge conditions represent the behaviour of the structure, without considering the turning restriction of the test piece. Either of the test methods may be used, or they may be used in a complementary manner, depending on the data required for designing the wall segment. Note: The choice of one method over the other, or the use of both, shall be agreed jointly by the person ordering and the person conducting the test.
