RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND RESULTS OF L.D.T.F. TESTS ON STEEL AND CONCRETE SPECIMENS
The paper presents the recent developments carried out on the Large Dynamic Test Facility (L.D.T.F.) both in its geometry and instrumentation. The streak film method has been added to the strain gauge and Moire fringe techniques to extend the strain measuring range beyond the onset of necking in steel samples. New results are presented comparing "static' and dynamic tests on plain and welded steel specimens. The L.D.T.F. has also been modified to allow tests on beams subjected to bending. The results of the first tests on heavy section reinforced concrete beams of 2 and 3 m length are presented.
