Pile Dynamics has recently announced the release of a new model of Pile Driving Analyzer® (PDA) System, the PDA-8G, billing it as the culmination of a complete redesign effort of the most widely employed system for Dynamic Load Tests of any type of deep foundation.  Like previous PDAs, this 8th generation model performs the test normalized by the American Society of Testing and Materials standard ASTM D4945.  The test, which for many decades has been accepted as an alternative for static load tests in more than 100 countries around the world, takes place either during pile driving or when a substantial mass impacts a non-driven pile.  At each impact the Pile Driving Analyzer takes data obtained by sensors attached to the pile and calculates bearing capacity and other quantities.

Millions of years ago, the sloping ground of southwest Utah was frequently covered with ash and debris, as a result of the intense volcanic activity taking place in the area. Those ash and debris layers were deposited on top of deeper deposits of hardened ash, which after eroding into slippery clay, set the ground for what now scientists believe was the world's largest landslide, covering an area nearly 39 times the size of Manhattan!

The European Space Agency made history yesterday by successfully landing Philae to Comet 67P. Philae was carried by the Roseta spacecraft that traveled for more than 10 years until it reached its destination. Philae successfully landed on the surface of the comet, but, according to the latest information available, it has not been able to attach itself to the comet and is running a risk of detaching from the comet’s surface. It still transmits truly unique data from the surface of the comet.
