AH Beck Foundation Co., Inc. and AFT recently demonstrated this to deliver North Carolina DOT the successful execution of a very complex Bi-Directional Load Test Shaft with double levels of multiple AFT-Cell’s. The added test complexity assures the drilled shaft side resistance and base resistance is fully mobilized.
