Q Figure 3: Note A suitable follower may be required for testing cast-in-place concrete piles. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The length of the cap should be at least 1. D d44945-00 00″ 5- Richard T. The load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests were compared for the three case studies of the residential tower buildings complex project.

L Load KN 0 0 0. The pairs of accelerometers and strain transducers ashm fixed to opposite sides of the tested pile, about at least one shaft diameter below the head, either by drilling and bolting directly to the pile or by welding mounting blocks to ensure a reasonably astmm stress field at the measuring elevation [5], [2]. Three projects are residential tower buildings representing a part of the residential tower buildings complex of Red Sea state.

A pile cap, as an extension to the shaft head with the same diameter as the shaftshould be constructed. The measured force at the pile top is separated into components upward and downward.


The load should be applied axially aetm the pile. Click here to sign up. The impact produces a compressive wave that travels down the shaft of the foundation. The electronic theodolite is placed 3 to 5m from the pile x4945-00. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This shows a reasonable agreement between the two test results.

The side of the cap is instrumented with two strain gauges, two accelerometers and electronic theodolite target. Q Tower 7 The formation at this area is predominantly coralline deposits consisting of completely to slightly weathered coral reef limestone that contains marine shells and fossils.

Dynamic Pile Testing – Quality testing | Dynamic Pile | Modern Construction solutions

The dynamic load pile test, which is a simple quality control test offering a considerable savings of time and cost and requires less space, can be used for predicting pile capacity and pile integrity under proper care and it should be calibrated by at least one static test.

Skip to main content. The static pile load test is conducted at low strain and takes longer time than the dynamic pile load test, which is conducted at considerably higher strain [1].

This test method is applicable to deep foundation units that function in a manner similar to foundation piles, regardless of their method of installation provided that they are receptive to high strain impact testing. The two test results are consistent to a good extent. The comparisons of load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests, shown in Figure 5Figure 6 and Figure 7indicate that the predicted settlement from dynamic and the measured settlement from static are generally consistent to a reasonable extent as reflected by the results of towers 7 and 8.

These sensors are connected to an instrument such as a pile driving analyzerthat records, processes and displays data and results [2], [3], [4]. A pair of strain transducers receives the signals necessary to compute force, while measurements from a pair of accelerometers are integrated to yield velocity.

A schematic sketch of SIMBAT equipment and instrumentation is presented in Figure 2whereas a photograph of a complete set of the equipment is shown in Figure 3. This paper has been focused on this type of pile loading test. It consists of estimating soil resistance and its distribution from force and velocity measurements obtained near the top of a foundation impacted by a hammer or drop weight. Remember me on this computer. The dynamic load is converted to static load and the predicted static load-settlement curve can be plotted.


Four case studies conducted in Red Sea state were taken.

Essential preparations should be made before the test is carried d49445-00 in the field. Solanki, Associte Professor, and Y. Q Figure 6-a: For a specific precautionary statement, see Note 5. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to optimize the pile design for projects by determining the actual ultimate pile capacity, which d4945-0 need to conduct pile test to failure or near to failure. This will be achieved by taking four case studies, conducted in Red Sea State in eastern Sudan.

In our opinion, it d495-00 wise that to determine the actual pile ultimate capacity for a project by testing at least one pile to failure. This will enable an economical pile design and offer a considerable saving of cost for the project. It can be concluded that the dynamic load pile test can be used for predicting pile capacity and pile integrity under proper care and it should be calibrated by at least one static test.

A series of hammer astmm are made with the hammer drop height progressively increased and decreased [8]. Q The main difference between this system and other dynamic load test systems is the using of asmt electronic scanning theodolite that records penetration for each blow and records real time elastic displacement [9]. This is Portsudan city, which is located in western coast of the Red Sea in eastern Sudan [11].

The initial part of the load-settlement curves Figure 6: The modern change, which is considered as one of the significant beneficial changes that have been made to the system since the last Irish survey in is the introduction of theodolite to measure the pile displacement during the impact [6], [7]. S4945-00 mandrel driven piles, the mandrel may be instrumented in a similar way to a asfm pile provided that the mandrel is constructed of a single member with no joints.

The cap must be cylindrical, smooth, well-reinforced and of good quality concrete.
