Drilled Shaft Resistance Based on Diameter, Torque and Crowd (Drilling Resistance vs. Rock Strength) Phase II

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Continue laboratory measurements of drilling parameters on synthetic limestone, (2) Develop rock strength from drilling parameters, (3) Preliminary monitoring of field drilling (pilot projects), and (4) Full scale drilled shaft installation with capacity estimated from drilling parameters followed by static load test.
