TC 212 TASK FORCES
Task Force 1: Bolivian Experimental Site for Testing piles (BEST)
TC212 organized an experimental site for testing piles where different pile types are installed and then tested under different loading conditions. The Bolivian Experimental Site for Testing Piles (B.E.S.T.) is situated 24 kilometers North-east of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. The purpose of the study was to provide results from full-scale loading tests on piles and a pile group. Results and interpretation were illustrated at the 3rd Bolivian International Conference on Deep Foundations (3° C.F.P.B.) and at the 19th ISSMGE Conference.
Detailed information, including all data of the prediction event, is available on the B.E.S.T. website http://www.cfpbolivia.com/web/page.aspx?refid=113.
The third volume of the proceedings of the 3rd Bolivian International Conference on Deep Foundations (3° C.F.P.B.), where results are summarized and commented, are available at http://www.cfpbolivia.com/web/page.aspx?refid=163.
