Extreme CFA Augercast Pile Tests
Augercast piling has evolved from small diameter piles supporting modest loading to large diameter mega-piles supporting 70+story structures in challenging subsurface conditions. This presentation includes examples and case histories of augercast piles up to 36 inches in diameter, installed to depths in excess of 170 ft. and subjected to load tests up to 10200 kips. In addition, the advancements in the installation equipment allowing the piles to be installed into rock and other challenging geomaterials will be presented.
