The project Plumier

Description of the test

The Plumier tests have been done inside pit Iris. The goal of these tests is to study the behavior under nearly static cyclic loading of a mixed steel-concrete structure.

The tests have been realized from October 6 to 8 in 1998 according to:

  1. Resolution of the elastic limit in displacement Vy of the structure
  2. Test of tireness until ruin of the structure by forcing displacement cycles of amplitude +/- 2.5 Vy
