The initial part of the load-settlement curves Figure 6: This is Portsudan city, which is located in western coast of the Red Sea in eastern Sudan [11]. Q The main difference between this system and other dynamic load test systems is the using of an electronic scanning theodolite that records penetration for each blow and records real time elastic displacement [9].

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Load-Settlement Curves for Tower No. Four case studies of dynamic and static pile loading tests conducted in the eastern of Sudan have been presented.

The capacity of the hammer should be large enough to achieve sufficient pile settlement so that the resistance of the tested pile can be fully mobilized.

Q Figure 6-a: Svinkin analyzed a distinctive case history presented by Briaud et al.

The electronic theodolite is placed 3 to 5m from the pile head. The load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests were compared for the three case studies of the residential tower buildings complex project. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to optimize the pile design for projects by determining the actual ultimate pile capacity, which may need to conduct pile test to failure or near to aastm.

This will be achieved by taking four case studies, conducted in Red Sea State in eastern Sudan. 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 zstm at least one static 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.


The two test results are consistent to a good extent. In our opinion, it is wise that to determine the actual pile ultimate capacity for a project by testing at least one pile to failure.

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

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. 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 f4945-00 impact [6], [7].

The length of the cap should be at least 1. Log In Sign Up. The cap must be cylindrical, smooth, well-reinforced and of good quality concrete. The pairs of accelerometers and strain transducers are 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 wstm or by welding mounting blocks to ensure a reasonably uniform stress field at the measuring elevation [5], [2].

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].


The side of the cap is instrumented with two strain gauges, two accelerometers and electronic theodolite target. For mandrel s4945-00 piles, the mandrel may be instrumented in a similar way to a driven pile provided that the mandrel is constructed of a single member with no joints.

Four case studies conducted in Red Sea state were taken. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of d945-00 standard.

There are two known methods, based on wave propagation theory, for the analysis and interpretation of the dynamic pile load test. The comparisons of load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests, asm 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 astmm of towers 7 and 8. Help Center Find new research papers in: This paper has been focused on this type of pile loading test.


This is very clear especially in the results of the pile of tower 1 project. These sensors are connected to an instrument such as a pile driving analyzerthat records, processes and displays data and results [2], [3], [4]. 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.

Note High-strain dynamic testing requires a strain at impact which is representative of a force in the pile having the same order of magnitude, or greater, than the ultimate capacity of the pile. Three projects are residential tower buildings representing a part of the residential tower buildings complex of Red Sea state. Solanki, Associte Professor, and Y. For a specific precautionary statement, see Note 5. The impact produces a compressive wave that travels down the shaft of the foundation.

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. Rajagopal, Post Graduate Student, C. Skip to main content. L Load KN 0 0 0. Essential preparations should be made before the test is carried out in the field.

But generally the settlements predicted by dynamic load test are slightly higher than the settlement measured by the static load test. The measured force at the pile top is separated into components upward and downward. D — 00″ 5- Richard T.

ASTM D – 00 Standard Test Method for High-Strain Dynamic Testing of Piles

Note A suitable follower may be required for testing cast-in-place concrete piles. A series of hammer blows are made with the hammer drop height progressively increased and decreased [8]. The static plot is verified by modeling. Active view current version of standard. This will enable s4945-00 economical pile design and offer a considerable saving of cost for the project. Q Tower 7 A pile cap, as an extension to the shaft head with the same diameter as the shaftshould be constructed.

This formation is characterized with great variability in horizontal and vertical directions.
