Pile Load Tests

Pile Load Tests

Pile testing acts as a quality control measure and validates design calculations, which play an important role in foundation design improvements in construction. Through use of load and deflection monitoring equipment, pile tests can be accompanied by accurate data guiding testing and reducing risk. Pile loading, whether is it static or dynamic, and pile integrity can be monitored continuously in real-time throughout the testing phase.

Pile testing generally requires load cells, displacement monitoring and strain gauges to quantify forces acting on the pile.
