Abstract : A test assembly for measuring compressive loading under actual field conditions having a standard Strain-sert stud strain transducer attached at each end to a piston-like member and mounted within a tubular housing. By mounting one piston-like member to a support shaft and the other piston-like member to the object supported, compressive loads, such as from the wind, can be accurately measured. (Author)
