German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Load tests to determine structural behaviour of walls
German term or phrase:Lagerschiene
nb. second of a series of five or six questions re. the same text
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 Nagelplatten versehenen ***Lagerschiene*** (Bild 13), die ihrerseits mit dem Aufspannfeld unverschieblich verbunden ist..."
Unfortunately, I haven't got any picture.
My tentative solution: bearing rail
Only one point as the end customer never really got back with comments / additional info but I was able to find out that the test arrangement didn't include a *free-sliding* rail. Thanks for your input anyway, Gillian. 1 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
