Event description

Description

We are excited to announce that our next meeting will be Wednesday, September 19th, from 12 to 1 pm. The meeting will again be held at Terracon's office located at 2401 Brentwood Road, Suite 106, Raleigh, North Carolina. Sandwhiches will be served for lunch. The registration fee of $10 per attendee ($5 for students) can be paid by credit card through Eventbrite . There is also an opportunity below for companies or individuals to provide sponsorship money. We encourage anyone who can to contribute so we can have funds available to rent facilities as needed, and provide discount registration fees to students (please note that contributions are not tax deductible).

Our topic for this meeting will be an auger-cast pile symposium. We ask that individuals, whether they can attend or not, evaluate the boring log attached to the email sent out and information presented below, and submit the following: estimated ultimate axial capacity including breakdown of skin friction and tip resistance, brief summary of analysis approach, and (optional) your calculations.

  • The site is in downtown Raleigh on South Wilmington Street.
  • Pile was installed to a depth of 24.5 feet below the existing ground surface.
  • Test pile had 1.5 feet of stickup (26 feet in total pile length).
  • Actual dimeter based on grout factor and grout loss was 1.81 feet.
  • The average grout strength at 7 days was 7,820 psi.

We ask that this information be submitted to abrowning@smeinc.com by September 12th in order for us to summarize the responses before the meeting. At the meeting we will present the actual ultimate capacity measured during a Statnamic load test and have a discussion regarding the approaches submitted. There will be a $25 gift card to the individual that estimates closest to the measured total capacity which occurred at 0.35 inch of tip movement.

Thank you again for your participation in RGG and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting.
