16th SAG Workshop

16th SAG Workshop

on Monday, 3rd and Tuesday, 4th of June 2019
in Gauting

SAG Standards for the Pulling Test Method
– developing technical standards for pulling tests and their evaluation

This time, we want to exclusively focus on what we have already learned from our experience and previous workshops. We would like to use this information together with the work already done so far to get the SAG standards really a big step ahead. Therefore, we would like to use this workshop to put together the frame of the SAG standard and finish the workshop with a draft version of it.
The plan is to work in the full group on Monday and start with presentations on specific topics like safety during pulling tests, generating usable data during the test, evaluating the data and the minimum level of knowledge to be gained in training before starting with pulling tests. Additionally, we would like to see the ethics discussion be continued that has been started in 2010 in Aschaffenburg and become part of the standards.
In the morning of June 4th 2019 the results of the first SAG funded wind tunnel study on the effect of adjacent trees on the wind load will be presented and their application to the evaluation will be discussed. Then we will continue in working groups and have the Annual General Meeting of SAG Baumstatik in the afternoon at 2 pm.
