When: April 19th, 2016
Who should attend:
Geotechnical, structural and construction engineers; contractors, researchers and students interested in or having the need for a full integrity analysis of drilled deep foundations, including evaluation of the concrete cover outside the reinforcing cage.
At the conclusion of the webinar attendees will be able to:
- Describe the basic principles of integrity evaluation using thermal measurements
- Collect data by various methods
- Evaluate eccentricity of cage alignment in the shaft
- Evaluate the measurements for local defects (in cross section or concrete quality)
- Describe the conversion process of temperature to effective shaft radius
- Recommended time window for testing after casting concrete
- Compare and contrast the advantages of thermal measurements, conventional Crosshole Sonic Logging (CSL), Low Strain Integrity Testing,and Gamma-Gamma testing of drilled shafts and ACIP/CFA piles.
- Motivation for integrity testing
- Advantages and limitations of CSL, Low Strain Integrity Testing, Gamma-Gamma and Thermal testing
- Principles of thermal measurements
- Interpretation of test data
- Test procedures
- Comparisons of Thermal and CSL/Gamma-Gamma results
- Examples / Case studies’
