WEBINAR on Benefits of Thermal Integrity Profiling and Review of Top and Bottom Roll-off Adjustments

When: Wednesday September 19, 2018

 Certificate of Participation The session of this program corresponds to 1.5 to 2 Professional Development Hours. A Certificate of Participation documenting the number of hours of instruction (PDH) will be provided to those that take a short quiz at the end of the webinar. Check with your engineering board of registration for their continuing education requirements.

The session will begin at 9:00 am Eastern (New York Time) and typically last 1.5 hours. Sessions may last up to a maximum of 2 hours depending on the number of questions from participants. Questions from participants have to be submitted during the webinar in written form (use chat-box or email) and will either be discussed during the seminar or in personal communication depending on the general interest of the question.

You will have the opportunity to learn from Mr. Daniel Belardo without having to leave your desk.


Learning Objective:

  • Provide an overview of applying TOS and BOS adjustments to TIP data
  • Review current state-of-practice guidelines for applying these adjustments
  • Evaluate drilled shaft and pile integrity in the top and bottom regions
  • 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.
