Research project "Unteres Hausfeld"

Load test on a bored pile

The City of Vienna, as one of the largest public contracting authorities in Austria initiated the research project "Unteres Hausfeld" with large-scale load tests on various foundation elements. The main objective is to record the subsoil resistances for the typical Viennese ground. A location in the largest city extension area of Vienna was selected for the experiments with the most frequently occurring soil types in Vienna, the quaternary sediments (sandy gravels, "Donauschotter") and the Miocene sedi-ments (sands, silts, clays).
