DFI Releases Report from Workshop on Quality Assurance for Post-Grouted Drilled Shafts

Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) has released a free, 187-page report from a workshop on quality assurance practices for acceptance of post-grouted drilled shafts.

 The workshop was held in October 2105 by DFI in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and with support from the International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC). Many important aspects of post-grouted drilled shafts on highway projects were covered, introducing the state of practice methods implemented by engineers and contractors followed by quality assurance issues that should be addressed for successful use of post-grouting.

Presentations and results of this workshop triggered interest in Several state Departments of Transportation (DOT) and Highway Administrations for accommodating technical practices, promoting quality assurance standards and formalizing guidance on design, construction and acceptance of these foundation elements.
