The test pile is instrumented with two pairs of strain gage and
accelerometer at about 1.5 times the pile diameter from pile
top. Impacts are given on the center of the pile top by dropping
the weight from several heights so long as the stresses are
within the limits and the required compressive capacity is mea-
sured by Pile Driving Analyzer (by PDI Inc. USA). An experienced
geotechnical engineer having extensive knowledge of operat-
ing PDA and wave theory can make decision on when to stop
the testing and raise concern for defects/damage if any.
The force and velocity signatures thus captured by the PDA are
further analyzed using a signal matching software viz.,
"CAPWAP" to confirm the mobilized compressive capacity
(together with resistance distribution along shaft and toe) and
to arrive at dynamic soil constants.
The same test method can also be used to monitor driven piles
for hammer performance, driving stresses and soil resistance
to driving.
