LATERAL STATNAMIC LOAD TEST INSTRUMENTATION
New instrumentation has been developed for lateral Statnamic load testing which is shown below. These Downhole Lateral Motion Sensor (DLMS) devices are installed in standard inclinometer casing and record lateral displacement of a foundation during a rapid lateral load test.
