project showcase Pile Feild Test
Location: Kelowna, B.C
Project: Pile Field TestSometimes it is necessary to field test, pile capacity. A test pile will be installed to the design torque along with additional piles to facilitate the testing procedure as illustrated in the attached pictures. A hydraulic jack imposes a load on the test pile while instruments record movement in the pile. The load is steadily increased over a period of time until the pile fails. All data is recorded and graphed to verify the piles ultimate capacity.
