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.

Municipalities are looking for ways to reduce costs and their administrative burden. Without a streamlined procurement process, purchasing basic goods and services to keep operations running can be negatively impacted by various proposals, approvals, cost optimization, and contractor due diligence.
Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is known for superior strength and durability. Its headlines have typically been about large infrastructure projects such as multi-lane bridges or building piers, but any size of project can benefit from the properties of UHPC.
The strength and durability of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) are valuable for a variety of applications, from repairing aging structures to creating efficient new designs. UHPC is championed by transportation departments and trade groups (including the U.S. Federal Highway Administration) for its ability to work in situations where traditional concrete is less suitable.
