For mandrel driven piles, the mandrel may be instrumented in a similar way to a driven pile provided that the asgm is constructed of a single member ast no joints. The two test results are consistent to a good extent. 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. This shows a reasonable agreement between the two test results.

The initial part of the load-settlement curves Figure 6: All tests were carried out on bored concrete piles.

The dynamic or total reaction, Rdy is calculated for each hammer blow and plotted versus cumulative penetration for the whole set of blows. This is Portsudan city, which is located in western coast of the Red Sea in eastern Sudan [11]. This formation is characterized with great variability in horizontal and vertical directions. 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 pile or by welding mounting blocks to ensure a reasonably uniform stress field at the measuring elevation [5], [2].

Rajagopal, Post Graduate Student, C. 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].

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]. 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.


A pile cap, as an extension to the shaft head with the same diameter as the shaftshould be constructed. The electronic theodolite is placed 3 to 5m from the pile head. This is very clear especially in the results of the pile of tower 1 project.

In our opinion, it is wise that to determine the actual pile ultimate d49450-0 for a project by testing at least one pile to failure. The impact produces a compressive wave that travels down the shaft of the foundation. There are two known methods, based on wave propagation theory, aatm the analysis and interpretation of the dynamic pile load test.

The load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests were compared for the three case studies of the residential tower buildings complex project.

Three projects are residential tower buildings representing a part of the residential tower buildings complex of Red Sea state. D — 00″ 5- Richard T. L Load KN 0 0 0.

Skip to main content. The cap must be cylindrical, smooth, well-reinforced and of good quality concrete. This will enable an economical pile design and offer 4d945-00 considerable saving of cost for the project.

Four case studies conducted in Red Sea state were taken. The side of the cap is instrumented with two strain gauges, two accelerometers and electronic theodolite target. 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.

Q Figure 3: The comparisons of load-settlement behaviors for dynamic and static load tests, shown 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 results of towers 7 and 8.

Help Center Find new research papers in: Q Tower 7 For a specific precautionary statement, see Note 5. Four case studies of dynamic and static pile loading tests conducted in the eastern of Sudan have been presented.

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 failure.

But generally the settlements predicted by dynamic load test are slightly higher than the settlement measured by the static load test. This will be achieved by taking four case studies, conducted in Red Sea State in eastern Sudan.

The measured force at the pile top is separated into ast upward and downward. This paper has been focused on this type of pile loading test. These sensors are connected to an instrument such as a pile driving analyzerthat records, processes and displays data and results [2], [3], [4]. It can be concluded that the dynamic load pile wstm can be used for predicting pile capacity and pile integrity under proper care and it should be calibrated by at least one static test.

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.


A pair of strain transducers receives the signals necessary to compute force, while measurements from a pair of accelerometers are integrated to yield velocity. The dynamic load pile test, which is a simple quality control test offering a considerable savings of time and cost and requires less space, adtm be used for predicting pile capacity and pile integrity under proper care and it should be calibrated by at least one static test.

Load-Settlement Curves for Tower No. Svinkin analyzed a distinctive case history presented by Briaud et al. The load should be applied axially on the pile. Solanki, Associte Professor, and Y. Q Figure 6-a: The pile design for projects should be optimized by determining aetm actual ultimate pile capacity, which may asrm to conduct pile test to failure or near to failure.

Q Mhaiskar, S. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

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].
