Q

Can Thermal Integrity Profiling (TIP) be performed on a shaft without a full length reinforcing cage (or center rebar for augercast pile)?

A

Both the Thermal Wire® cables and access tubes require some type of reinforcing element (cage, center bar, etc.) for attachment and alignment purposes. In general, without a full length cage or center rebar Thermal Integrity Profiling is limited to the portion of shaft containing the cage or center rebar.
