Analysis of continuous flight auger behaviour in sedimentary soil
This project studies the behaviour of continuous flight auger in a sedimentary soil, submitted to static compression loading tests. Two different locals are analysed, CFA lengths varying between 10 and 13m. The whole process is instrumented with electrical strain gages sticked to steel bars, installed in different levels along the CFA. The objective is to understand the relation between theoretical and semi empirical capacity results and compression loading tests, and how load is transferred.
