For mandrel driven piles, the mandrel may be instrumented in a similar way to a driven pile provided that the mandrel is constructed of a single d9445-00 with no joints. All tests were carried out on bored concrete piles. 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].

It consists of estimating soil resistance and its distribution from force and velocity measurements obtained near the top of astmm foundation impacted by a hammer or drop weight. This is Portsudan city, which is located in western coast of the Red Sea in eastern Sudan [11]. The cap must be cylindrical, smooth, well-reinforced and of good quality concrete. 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 test can be used for predicting pile capacity and pile integrity under proper care and it should astmm calibrated by at least one static test. The dynamic or total reaction, Rdy is calculated for each hammer blow and plotted versus cumulative penetration for the whole set of blows. 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 by at least one static test.


The formation at this area is predominantly coralline deposits consisting of completely to slightly weathered coral reef limestone that contains marine shells and fossils. For a specific precautionary statement, see Note 5.

The initial part of the load-settlement curves Figure 6: Q Figure 3: The aztm test results are consistent to a good extent.

Essential preparations should be made before the test is carried out in the field. The static plot is verified by modeling. This formation is characterized with great variability in horizontal and vertical directions.

The measured force at the pile top is separated into components upward and downward. This will be achieved by taking four case studies, conducted in Red Sea State in eastern Sudan. Skip to main content. The load should be applied axially on the pile. In our opinion, it is wise that to determine the actual pile ultimate capacity for a project axtm testing at least one pile to failure. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to optimize the pile design for projects by determining the d4945-000 ultimate pile capacity, which may need to conduct pile test to failure or near to failure.

A pair of strain transducers receives the signals necessary to compute force, while measurements from a pair of accelerometers are integrated to yield velocity. Svinkin analyzed a distinctive case history presented by Briaud et al. But generally the settlements predicted by dynamic load test are slightly higher than the settlement measured by the static load test.

This is very clear especially in the results of the pile of tower 1 project. A series of hammer blows are made with the hammer drop height progressively increased and decreased [8]. The electronic theodolite is placed 3 to 5m from the pile head.


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. Note High-strain dynamic testing requires a strain at impact which is representative of a force in the astn having the same astn of magnitude, or greater, than the ultimate capacity of the pile.

Four case studies conducted in Red Sea state were taken.

Log In Sign Up. The dynamic load is converted to static load and the predicted static load-settlement curve can be plotted. Four case studies of dynamic and static pile loading tests conducted in the eastern of Sudan have been presented.

The impact produces a compressive wave that travels down the shaft of the foundation. There are two known methods, based on wave propagation theory, for the analysis and interpretation of the dynamic pile load test.

This will enable an economical pile design and offer a considerable saving of cost for the project. 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 pile design for projects should be optimized by determining the actual ultimate pile capacity, which may need to conduct pile test to failure or near to failure.
