Applications

iPile can be used to test cast-in-place concrete piles and drilled shafts. The device allows you to test for multiple flaws & unknown factors such as the length of piles, voids and defects in piles & changes in pile cross-sections.

iPile’s 3 main applications are to:

👷🏻 Evaluate Continuity of Piles

👷🏻 Test Consistency of Pile Materials

👷🏻 Evaluate Physical Dimensions

How iPile Works

iPile operates based on sonic-echo (also referred to as pulse-echo) method to evaluate integrity of deep foundations and piles. The testing process is completed in three simple steps.

✅ A hand-held hammer is used to strike the pile head.

✅ The echoes from pile toe and/or internal defects are collected using iPile sensor

✅ Test results are instantly visualized on Tablet, helping engineers with data processing.
