Pile Testing

Terrain Geotechnical Design Projects

Pile Testing...

Pile testing forms the basis of pile design verification. We undertake Static Load Testing using our patented beams for restricted access, together with Pile Integrity Testing (PIT).

In certain circumstances Static Load Testing can reduce both costs and design risk. Current and future standards allow piles to be designed to a lower factor of safety providing a Static Load Test is undertaken. In a situation where there are a significant number of contract piles, installing preliminary non-contract piles and testing them to optimise design parameters can result in considerable shortening of the contract piles, thereby reducing the overall cost of the piling contract and the design risk. This is particularly the case with micropiles in restricted access areas which are relatively slow to construct.
