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

I'm specifically looking for an AE term, if any.

MTIA once again for your help,
Steffen

Explanation:
another perhaps, as it is rather difficult without pics. Take a look at the reference, there is an illustration (page 13) of the set-up of a shear testing unit.

Grading comment
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.
