Pile and Open Foundation Tests

Integrity and Dynamic tests are most frequently used tests to assess the continuity and load bearing capacity of the pile

Integrity Test

(ASTM D-5882)

Pile integrity test is used to assess the continuity of piles. With this test, necking or bulging and uniformity of quality of concrete is checked. This test does not determine the length of pile.

Pile Dynamic Test

ASTM 4995 (High Strain Dynamic Test) and IS-2911 (part-1 section-1)

Pile dynamic test is used to assess the load bearing capacity of the pile. This test uses a impact hammer (of weight in proportion of the weight of pile). Test are conducted to comply to international codes like ASTM 4995 (High Strain Dynamic Test) and IS-2911 (part-1 section-1) using Hileys formula based on the preference of the client/consultant. Data is captured using state of the art instruments. Data processing is done to arrive at the dynamic load bearing capacity as per applicable standards. This test is relatively easy to conduct and requires very few site arrangements as compared to a static load test.

Open foundation testing

Assessment of foundation size and strength

Assessment of foundation is done for size and its strength by excavation, measurement taking cores samples for testing.
