Pile Driving Monitoring

Pile Driving Monitoring has for primary purpose to establish the bearing capacity of a pile.

In addition, electronic monitoring of strain and acceleration waves at the top of a pile or a sheet pile during impact or vibro-driving, allows for:

  • A control of the hammer efficiency,
  • A control of the soil behaviour during driving,
  • A control of the induced stress and particularly the risk of pipe buckling at toe.

Dynamic Pile Testing

The dynamic load test allows to measure the ultimate bearing capacity of a pile by impact from a hammer or free fall drop weight. This method allows a large number of piles to be tested in record time and at low cost, which greatly improves the reliability of the data.. 

Static Pile Testing

Static load testing measures the load resistance behaviour of deep foundations. It differs from rapid and dynamic load testing as the load is slowly applied to the deep foundation.

Static Load Tests can be performed to validate foundation design assumptions regarding the axial compression or axial tension resistance provided by a deep foundation element, or its deflected shape under a lateral load.

Training

As a proven expert, we offer tailored training services to a range of companies wishing to develop their understanding in Pile Testing. We are an accredited training company providing theoretical and onsite practical training.

Other services

We also offer specialised services such as Pile integrity testing services, bottom of bored piles inspection and Diesel hammer instrumentation.

The need for Pile Driving Monitoring

Pile Driving Monitoring (PDM) during driving and Pile Dynamic Testing (PDT) are widely used in onshore and offshore construction to ensure the structural integrity of the piles during driving and achieve a safe and economical pile installation.
