Accuracy From Start To Finish
DFI pile testing is conducted in accordance with ASTM International (formerly known as the American Society For Testing & Materials) standards. In particular, we most commonly use the following depending on the type(s) of testing used:
- ASTM D4945-17 – Standard Test Method For High-Strain Dynamic Testing Of Deep Foundations
- ASTM D1143/D1143M-20 – Standard Test Methods For Deep Foundation Elements Under Static Axial Compressive Load
- ASTM D3689/D3689M-07(2013)e1 – Standard Test Methods For Deep Foundations Under Static Axial Tensile Load
- ASTM D3966/D3966M-07(2013)e1 – Standard Test Methods For Deep Foundations Under Lateral Load
Our engineers use your geotechnical data and structural needs to develop a personalized load testing program that meets or exceeds industry standards. Following this we execute static or dynamic tests using our proprietary installation equipment.
Pile capacity testing provides site-specific results of pile performance, which is used to either economize foundation designs (pre-design/pre-construction) or to verify design (post-design/during construction).
