- Wall demolitions were conducted for the public, as demonstrated in the following videos. Unreinforced concrete masonry showed extensive brittle failure when hit with the battering ram. The ram was only able to puncture holes in the "rubble wall", causing localized failure on the outer surface.
- Initial tests on static loading were conducted. Two hydraulic jacks were fixed to each wall corner. Each was loaded in increments from 100 psi to 790 psi. Displacement/deflection were recorded using:
Construction postponed due to Labor Day holiday (9/5) & inclement weather (9/6).
Concrete finish will be added to 3 completed walls beginning 9/7. Rubble to added to fourth wall as soon as material arrives.
