Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Load tests to determine structural behaviour of walls
German term or phrase: Aufspannfeld
This is the first of a series of five or six questions I'll be asking in the next few minutes.

The relevant paragraph describes a test set-up in a structural engineering laboratory (testing facility) used to determine the structural behaviour of timber wall elements/components. Here goes (term in ***):

"Die Versuchsanordnung für die experimentelle Ermittlung der Last-Verschiebungs-Zusammenhänge für raumhohe PUR-Wandelemente unter Schubbeanspruchungen besteht im wesentlichen aus einer mit dem ***Aufspannfeld*** biegesteif verbundenen Reaktionswand aus Stahlelementen, die als Widerlager für die in einer Höhe von 2,60 m
eingeleiteten Horizontalkräfte dient ..."

My tentative solution: set-up fixture

I'm specifically looking for an AE term, if any. Also, could "Aufspann-" relate to prestress applied to the structure? (They mention prestressing members/tendons in some of the following paragraphs.)

MTIA for your help,
Steffen

Explanation:
perhaps, perhaps, perhaps, tra-la!

This appears to be similar to the "racking shear test" (e.g. ref.), which would make this "Aufspannfeld" a clamping frame to hold the unit being tested.

Good luck with this one (your're gonna need it!)

Same situation as with my "Lagerschiene" query (I'm still left in the dark...). Thanks anyway.
