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...

[OnDemand Webinar] Nondestructive Testing of Concrete
Concrete is widely regarded as the most used man-made material in the world. Even with superb advances in modern concrete technologies to make more durable, longer-lasting structures today, the need for assessment and evaluation of existing concrete structures has never been higher. Non-destructive testing (NDT) of concrete is a commonly used (and often misused) approach to evaluate existing concrete structures. Learn more about non-destructive testing and how it can be an asset in the evaluation of concrete structures. This presentation will help you to understand: The difference between concrete NDT and other common NDE methods NDT for concrete strength versus...

Exploring Infrared Technology at Tech Fest 2016
A few of our Braun Intertec employees recently made their way out to Tech Fest 2016, a family engineering and technology fair, to lead a demonstration on the power of light and energy. The event featured dozens of hands-on demonstrations and activities lead by actual engineers and scientists from businesses, non-profits, educational institutions, and corporations throughout the Twin Cities area. Steve Flaten from our Building Sciences group led a demonstration on infrared technology to show what kinds of energy comprises light, and the visible versus invisible spectrum. Many families were invited to participate in experiments that revealed how certain conditions...
