Choose Your Testing Partner Wisely
A symbiotic relationship between the testing professional and the foundation contractor is vital to each other’s success. AH Beck Foundation Co., Inc. and AFT recently demonstrated this to deliver North Carolina DOT the successful execution of a very complex Bi-Directional Load Test Shaft with double levels of multiple AFT-Cell’s.
The added test complexity assures the drilled shaft side resistance and base resistance is fully mobilized. Engineers could then reduce uncertainty in the design and optimize the drilled shaft lengths for the project.
