Model 1800

Model 1800 Telltales are designed to measure the pattern of load transfer in piles, drilled shafts, and tieback anchors. They can also be used to garner information on pile tip movements and deflections along the pile. Telltales are commonly used in piles subjected to Static Load Tests, the results of which provide information used to confirm (or refine) the design of deep foundations. A major advantage of the Telltale system is the fact that the telltale rods can be inserted into the PVC or steel tubes after the pile has been driven or cast, thus reducing the likelihood of damage. This configuration also allows the telltale rods to be removed after testing is complete, such that they can be reused on subsequent tests.
