#CPF-2015-DRSH-1 Guide to Tremie Concrete For Deep Foundations, 2nd Edition
EFFC and DFI Concrete Task Group
PDF, 83 pages, Illustrated

The primary purpose of this report is to provide guidance for characterization related to performance, mix design process, and methods used to test fresh concrete. The principles of this guide apply to tremie concrete for deep foundations but may also be applied for other forms of deep foundations (e.g., continuous flight auger piling). The guide addresses design considerations including concrete rheology, mix design, reinforcement detailing, concrete cover, and good practice rules for placement. A review of methods to test the as-built elements is presented together with advice on the identification and interpretation of the results.

#CPF-2014-SLMX-1 Influences of Mixture Proportions and Test Conditions on the Strength and Stiffness of Wet-Mixed Soil and Cement
DFI Soil Mixing Committee, Roberto Nevárez-Garibaldi, Dale Miller, and George Filz, Virginia Tech
PDF, 405 pages, Illustrated

Establishing a suitable mix design is important to provide the engineering property values necessary for adequate performance of a deep mixing support system. The mix design process often includes a laboratory mixing program to identify suitable binder types and appropriate mixture proportions. The objectives of this research were to investigate: (1) the influences of laboratory procedures and test conditions on measured property values of cement-treated soil, (2) relationships between engineering property values, such as the relationship between unconfined compressive strength and Young's modulus, and (3) the influence of mix design proportions on cured strength and on mixture consistency immediately after mixing.

#CPF-2016-ACIP-1 ACIP Pile Installation, Installation Monitoring, Full-scale Load Testing, and Extraction Program
DFI Augered Cast-In-Place Pile Committee, Dr. Antonio Marinucci, MBA, P.E. and W. Morgan NeSmith, Jr., P.E.
PDF, 138 pages, Illustrated

DFI’s Augered Cast-In-Place (ACIP) Pile Committee performed a foundation installation, monitoring, performance and extraction program for ACIP piles in the fall of 2016. The purpose of the project was to demonstrate a fully monitored installation of instrumented 18-in (457 mm) and 24-in (610 mm) diameter ACIP piles, including automated monitoring equipment (AME); post-installation thermal integrity profiling (TIP) measurements; compression, tension, and lateral load testing (including monitoring of strain gages embedded along the compression pile shaft); and post-testing extraction of an installed pile for visual inspection.
