Summary[edit]

Description

The Emery Testing Machine had a capacity of 2,300,000 pounds in compression and 1,150,000 pounds in tension, and could accomodate specimens up to 30 feet in length. The advantages of the horizontal testing machine were that it simplified the application of side loads in column testing, made examination of specimens easier, and offset the need for high bay areas. An unusal feature of the machine was its high sensitivity. It could detect and read out deformation due to compression or tension within 20 pounds.
