... (FEM) and then statically load tested and fatigue tested to simulate typical oil field conditions. Various properties, including hardness, were documented along with the microstructure. Corrosion testing was also performed to compare the critical pitting temperature of the Alloy 625‚ÄČAM material...

... Stone column foundations are often incorrectly regarded as piles and tested accordingly. For single columns load tests are appropriate. However full scale field tests in which stresses on and between columns were measured clearly demonstrate how the performance of columns under widespread loads...

... are used to verify the adequacy of the assumptions made for the analytic solution and to judge the appropriateness of the soil-pile interaction parameters. Dynamic lateral-load tests were conducted on eleven steel-pipe piles at three sites in southeastern Michigan. The piles were 324 and 356 mm (12.75...
