This chapter discusses the aspects related to processing the results of a load test after the test. The way in which the data are processed depends on the goals of the test. As such, the report that summarizes the preparation, execution, and post-processing of the load test should clearly state the goal of the load test, how the test addressed this goal, and what can be concluded based on an analysis of the test results. Typical elements of the post-processing stage include discussing the applied load, the measured structural responses, and then evaluating the bridge based on the results of the load test.
