FDOT Makes Use of Statnamic Load Testing in West Palm Beach, Florida
AFT recently performed three Statnamic Load Tests for the FDOT bridge replacement project at SR80 Southern Blvd over the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach, Florida. The drilled shaft foundations for the new bridge utilize AFT’s manufactured tip grouting apparatus and base grouting to increase usable end bearing. The test program included pressure grouting of the drilled shaft tip via pre-installed grout apparatus, followed by top down Statnamic load testing. Statnamic applied test loads ranged from 4,500 kips to 7,200 kips. AFT also supplied our state of the art Shaft inspection Device (SID) and will be performing CSL testing on all the upcoming production shafts on the project.
