Number of Spans

For testing continuous spans, the test specimen should incorporate no fewer than five spans; i.e., two end and three intermediate spans. End spans should be two-thirds of the span of internal spans.  Tests using four spans (two end spans and two internal spans) or three equal spans may be validated by comparing results against a five-span test of the same sample and adjusting the resultant load tables accordingly.
