CHUM Tomography case study

Case History 5: 3D Tomography (3DT)

This 26m (85ft) 2.44m diameter (8ft) massive pile was installed with 8 access tubes (US rule of thumb is 1 tube/feet of diameter).

Three major defects were found on a simple CSL test, and the access tubes were used to jet-grout the pile in an attempt to repair it.

A repeated test with tomography was done post-repair, on all 28 tube combinations. The results are presented in a PDF format

Note that all the graphics (except the 3D image) is vector and not raster (meaning it maintains resolution at any zoom level) - so that it can be printed in high-res.
