On Site at the Leware Construction Yard in Leesburg, Florida

In this test, we are installing our 18”x18”x100’ piling into the ground with the first of two hammers we used for the test, the D36. During our testing, we monitored the vertical stresses delivered to the piling during installation with a similar suite of monitoring sensors as we did in the flexural testing.

Conclusion of Cor-Tuf UHPC Installation Testing

This is the top of the pile after all testing concluded. Aside from some discoloration caused by the hammer pad, the piling is otherwise in ideal condition. Regardless of which hammer was used or force exerted, the structural integrity of the piling never dipped below 100 percent.
