This is an update of the Araquari prediction event. The polymer-based bored pile has been successfully tested at Araquari, reaching a bearing capacity of approx. 860tons.
Out of the 72 worldwide participants in the prediction event, 62 predictions have been considered valid and compared in our statistical analysis. We have selected 3 predictors as winners.
A summary of results is presented in the attached file.

Ongoing research will allow for detailed interpretation of testing data.
