Applications and Limitations of Pile Integrity Test

Applications and Limitations of Pile Integrity Test

Pile Integrity Test can be used to determine the integrity of piles. The method works best for long structural component such as driven concrete piles, cast-in place concrete piles, concrete filled steel pipe piles, timber piles, structural columns. The method works based on measuring and analyzing the velocity (required) and force (optional) response of pile. A Read more about Applications and Limitations of Pile Integrity Test[…]

What is Pile Integrity Test ?

Concrete piles and drilled shafts are an important category of foundations. Despite their relatively high cost, they become necessary when we want to transfer the loads of a a heavy superstructure (bridge, high rise building, etc.) to the lower layers of soil. Quality control and quality assurance has been a popular, yet challenging task for Read more about What is Pile Integrity Test ?[…]

Non-Destructive Evaluation of Unknown Foundations

Non-destructive evaluation of unknown foundations and piles has gained interest among engineers and researcher over the past few years. Latest research show the effectiveness of these methods in investigating the depth and quality of existing piles, as well as in the quality assurance of new construction. Piles are structural members made of timber, steel, or Read more about Non-Destructive Evaluation of Unknown Foundations[…]

Why and When to Use Concrete Piles?

Piles and drilled shafts are an important category of foundations. Despite their relatively high cost, they become necessary when we want to transfer the loads of a a heavy superstructure (bridge, high rise building, etc.) to the lower layers of soil. Another reason for choosing a pile foundation is the condition and quality of soil layers. Read more about Why and When to Use Concrete Piles?[…]
