Discussion Topic : Questions about GeoWall loading frame

1. What are the dimensions (length, width, height) of the hardwood impact block used for the third load case?

2. Please clarify how the impact block and steel L bar are to be connected. It is unclear in Figure 4 (Side View) whether the guide rod goes through both or if they connected through other means.

3. What is the thickness of the '3/4" Steel L' labeled in Figure 4?

Thank you!

1) The impact pad will be a 4 in. wide, 6 in. long and 3/4 in. thick oak block. 

2) The guide rod will pass through both the steel L bar and impact pad. 

3) The steel L is 1/8 in thick.
