Preparation of test specimens, slip coefficient set-up and testing procedures; tension creep test set-up and testing procedures; reporting
The AISC Research Council for Structural Connections handles the testing procedure as an appendix to a very large specification that has very little information pertaining to testing of coatings used in these connections. And there is no precision and bias data based on repeatability and reproducibility of the method. I addition, many testing variables believed to affect the outcome of the test are not defined. Users include bridge and building designers that employ bolted connections, manufacturers of coatings and testing laboratories.
