An axial load is a load applied along or parallel to and concentric with the primary axis, and is used as part of ASTM E72 to aid in determining the structural properties of wall, floor and roof constructions. While the ASTM E72 Axial Load Test is part of our SIP Panel Testing and Certification Program, it is also used for many other product such as proprietary sheathing, light gauge steel studs and other proprietary fasteners.
