Experiment-2: Initial Baseline Test and Conditioning of Pile Cap with Several Displacement Cycles
Experiment Type: Field
Description: Tests were done to assess the lateral load response of full-scale pile cap with no backfill in place. This test is one out of three that did not have a backfill in place. The test site had three basic features: a reaction foundation, a test pile cap, and the backfill soil zone. The pile caps were subjected to static, cyclic and dynamic loadings. The hydraulic load actuators statically loaded (pushed slowly) the pile cap to target displacement levels that were incrementally larger. For each level, the actuators would apply low frequency, small displacement loading cycles to the pile cap, and an eccentric mass shaker would apply higher frequency, small displacement dynamic load cycles.
