Lateral Load Testing

Lateral load testing of deep foundations (ASTM D-3966) is routinely performed by FTG Engineers. Testing of drilled shafts, driven piles, micro piles, auger cast piles and helical anchors are performed regularly. Lateral load testing provides a field verification of lateral design. FTG, Inc. is a leader in the industry using inclinometers and other advanced instrumentation, during lateral load tests, so that we can compare the results of lateral load test deflections to design p-y curves in order to value engineer the ultimate design.
