Performance Testing of GRS Test Piers Constructed with Florida Aggregates - Axial Load Deformation Relationships

Project objectives are to perform a background review of the literature and reports on GRS structures and pier tests. Design full-scale axial load-deformation tests of GRS piers. Construct and test each GRS pier. Compare the performance with current design methods and proposed methods. Make recommendations to Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for predicting axial load capacity and vertical and horizontal deformation.
