Fugro Loadtest provides a wide range of ancillary services. The local services vary in different regions around the world. Please contact your local Fugro office to discuss your needs.
One of the most exciting new technologies developed by Fugro Loadtest is the RIM-cell. The RIM-cell is a relatively inexpensive Quality Assurance tool.
The RIM-cell can be embedded in a single pre-determined test pile or in multiple piles where only some to be tested. A bi-directional load test is performed with full load-displacement information by using the cross section of the pile itself as part of the pressure vessel.
The RIM-cell can also be used for post installation pre-stressing. The advantage over other systems is full verification of the pre-stressing and load test results.
Split Lateral Modulus Testing
Fugro Loadtest can also provide full scale modulus testing. O-cells are embedded in a bored pile or other element perpendicular to the vertical axis. Loads are applied in lateral directions and the two pile vertical halves are expanded into the soil or rock. Expansion of each cell is maintained equal by varying the load applied. Analysis of this test is more complex than analysis of a traditional lateral load test. Consult with Fugro Loadtest for additional information and suitability.
