Educational Videos

As a member of DFI’s Testing and Evaluation Committee LTC’s co-founder, Robert Simpson, helped develop an informative primer on Static Load Testing. He won DFI’s first ever President’s Award for his efforts in 2016. Check out the 24 minute video “Static Load Testing of Deep Foundation Elements” or bookmark it for later as more time is available.
