> The Rincent Nord-Pas-de-Calais agency intervened on a parking project   in  Colmar. It  was  to perform a tensile test on piles whose function is to take up the pushing forces induced by the water during the rise of the water table.

The test load was monitored by a calibrated load cell. To be noted in the foreground of the photograph, the presence of a pumping well that allows lowering the water table. The efforts   generated   by   the horizontal  water pressure are quickly very important. For example, a parking lot of 5,000m² under a hydraulic load of one-meter-high    water    leads    to    a   horizontal pressure of 5,000 tons.
