Structure Support On Laterally Swept Piles
Anyone who has observed a significant number of piles has seen that, inevitably, the pile is not perfectly straight after driving. In spite of the best efforts of contractors, there are a whole host of reasons for piles to end up out-of-plumb or to have a curve, sometimes referred to as pile sweep. For two, recent projects with numerous swept pile, the available research was determined to be limited in application given the investigated pile sizes, lengths and measured sweep. As a result, the project team chose to perform static load testing to evaluate the ultimate resistance of the swept...

Leveling the Field: The Importance of Floor Flatness
What are F-numbers, and why do they Matter? F-numbers, determined in accordance with ASTM E 1155, are the widely accepted measurements for evaluating flatness and levelness of concrete slabs. Modern-day floor flatness and levelness test methods have made life easier for designers and end users of facilities with concrete floor slabs. In the not too distant past, concrete floor flatness was measured by laying a ten-foot straightedge on a finished floor and measuring the gap between the straightedge and the concrete over the span. If the gap was measured to be 1/8th inch or less it was commonly considered to...
