AbstractThis report deals with the loading tests that were conducted on two series (a pilot series and an acceptance performance series) of box lintels to determine their load-carrying capacity and deflection characteristics. Two uses or load conditions were considered, that of an opening in an exterior wall, supporting roof rafters (snow load), and that in an interior wall (no snow load).
