Piled foundation testing

We have years of experience in pile testing and propose the following tests:

Pile load tests

A pile load test verifies the getechnical performance of a pile in terms of load-settlement. We are specialised in dynamic load testing, which is the only load test we propose at this time:

Dynamic load test

A high strain load test which uses a drop weight and wave mechanics theory. The result is a load-settlement curve per tested pile.

Pile integrity tests

The aim of a pile integrity test aim is to verify the structural integrity of a concrete pile. We propose three kinds of integrity tests:

Sonic-echo test

The test operator hits the pile top with a hand-held hammer while the pile top velocity is measured. The test aim is to detect potential anomalies along the pile.

Impulse response test

An advanced version of the sonic echo test, where the hand-held hammer is instrumented, which allows to assess the pile response in the frequency domain.

Cross-hole sonic logging

A receiver probe and a transmitter probe are lowered in reservation tubes prepared in the deep foundation in order to measure the concrete quality between the tubes.
