Résumé

The critical reading and discussion by the discusser is appreciated. It shows the interest of the geotechnical community on this subject and gives the technical paper an additional perspective. One comment from the discusser relates to an obvious mistake having been made in the paper: the load test results shown in Figs. 7(a and b) in the paper “Main results of an instrumented load test with removable extensometer” do not match with those shown in Fig. 7(c). This is because they have not been taken from the same load test results, and the writers wish to apologize for any misunderstanding. In fact, the goal of Fig. 7 was merely to show the principle of an instrumented load test and the general shape of the load-displacement and load-depth curves. For sure, the displacement at the shaft on Fig. 7(c), if taken from the same load test results should be somewhere between the head displacement and the tip displacement.
