Post Placement

State WI
Description Text

We had a beam guard hit.  During the replacment process, breaker run keeps falling into the existing hole.  Does MwRSF know of installation methods to help stablize the soil to allow for replacement posts to be installed?

We are not aware of any procedures for replacing posts in damaged installations that restrain the soil during reinstallation.

For full-scale testing system repairs, MwRSF replaces damaged posts in 3' cored holes that are then refilled with tamped lifts. This is done in order to maintain consistent and adeuqate soil stength per MASH requirements.
