More-Direct Conversion of Strain to Internal Force in Static Load Tests

Nurcor Skyline Webinar series with GRL

Register today to join Nucor Skyline and GRL Engineers for a one-hour, complimentary webinar. A more-direct method of converting strains measured during a static load test to internal forces in the tested deep-foundation element will be offered. Theory, background, and practical-application examples from case histories will be presented.

Topics to be covered include:

From Strain to Internal Force
Estimating Concrete Modulus – The ACI Relationship
The Tangent Modulus Method
Axial Rigidity, and the Incremental Rigidity (“IR”) Method
Static Load Testing Protocol that Benefits the IR Method
Case Histories Application Examples
Strain-Dependent Rigidity
Required Strain Magnitude
Above-Grade Strain Gages
Interpretable vs. Non-Interpretable Results
Averaging Applied Load and Strain Values
Non-Uniform Modulus Values
