StatRapid testing at Yara Sluiskil

 

On the 4th of July 2016 Allnamics checked the capacity and stiffness of 4 production piles (Fundex-type), commissioned by contractor Ballast Nedam Industriebouw BV.

 

The piles are part of the tank foundation for the UREA Granulation 8 Project on the production yard of Yara in Sluiskil, the Netherlands. Rapid Load Testing system StatRapid has been deployed, with which, following CUR guideline 230, the load-displacement behaviour of the piles has been determined.

 

The proof load testing was a contractual requirement and the (positive) results are regarded as representative for the entire tank foundation. Consequently the foundation slab has been cast with high confidence in the foundation design.
