Why Pile Integrity Test?

The inspection and evaluation of concrete piles and deep foundations are often challenging, mainly because these elements are not easily accessible for visual inspection. The process of quality control for this group of elements is very much through indirect measurement of other parameters, i.e. resistance of pile to driving or drilling. In other words, the process of quality control in pile construction is somewhat blind. Pile Integrity Testing can be used to shed light on this hidden part of concrete piles.
