Assessment of Drill Shaft Capacity and QA/QC from Measuring While Drilling

The objective of this research are (1) using Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Measuring While Drilling (MWD) criteria (FM 5-625), develop a versatile data analysis tool that will be used to provide drilled shaft MWD quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC); (2) conduct a feasibility study to identify the requirements of providing on-site and remote monitoring capabilities to enhance the QA/QC method; (3) monitor at least one load tested shaft and three production shafts at three independent sites to develop correlations for QA/QC purposes; (4) provide a QA/QC report for all shafts monitored during the research; (5) compare test results (from load tests and lab unconfined compression results) with previously derived correlations.
