    Rationale

    This ballot proposes to revise C1717 standard (Conducting Strength Tests of Masonry Wall Panels). This test method allows two methods for testing wall panels transversely and vertically oriented. Both quarter-point loading and air bag loading are allowed. As these two methods produce different moment distributions, a note is being added to flag this difference to users. This note was proposed earlier and has been revised based on negatives.
