Applied Foundation Testing’s Tampa, Florida office has an instrumentation laboratory/fabrication facility. We mainly construct instrumentation for use on our own projects, but have also supplied instrumentation to other consultants, contractors and owners. This unique situation provides us the capability to ensure the quality of instrumentation used on our projects. It also allows us to respond very quickly to short notice circumstances. We can also readily ustomize our testing equipment or construct instruments for special applications. AFT routinely provides “turnkey” testing, instrumentation, and analysis packages. Our most commonly constructed instrumentation includes the following:
Full bridge sister bar resistance strain gages for deep foundation load testing. Quarter bridge sister bar resistance strain gages for deep foundation load testing. Weldable type resistance strain gages for steel pile deep foundation load testing. Accelerometer based motion sensor assemblies. Resistance type piezometers. Pressure transducer assemblies. Specialize in custom field installation applications.
