Four case studies of dynamic and static pile loading tests conducted in the eastern of Sudan have been presented. For a specific precautionary statement, see Note 5. Svinkin analyzed a distinctive case history presented by Briaud et al. astk

Log In Sign Up. 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 be calibrated by at least one static test. 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 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 pairs of accelerometers and strain transducers are fixed to opposite sides of the tested astk, about at least one shaft diameter below the head, either by drilling and bolting directly to the pile or by welding mounting blocks to ensure a reasonably uniform stress field at the measuring elevation [5], [2].


The two test results are consistent to a good extent. Q Mhaiskar, S.

It consists of estimating soil resistance and its distribution from force and velocity measurements obtained near the top of a foundation impacted by a hammer or drop weight. The formation at this area is predominantly coralline deposits consisting of completely to slightly weathered coral reef limestone that contains astmm shells and fossils.

There are two known methods, based s4945-00 wave propagation theory, for the analysis and interpretation of the dynamic pile load test. But generally the settlements predicted by dynamic load test are slightly higher than the settlement measured by the static asfm test. The length of the cap should be at least 1. Note High-strain dynamic testing requires a strain at impact which is representative of a force in the pile having the same order of magnitude, or greater, than the ultimate capacity of the pile.

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].

D — 00″ 5- Richard T. This is Portsudan city, which is d49450-0 in western coast of the Red Sea in eastern Sudan [11]. In our opinion, it is wise that to determine the actual pile ultimate capacity for a project by testing at least one pile to failure. Three projects are residential tower buildings representing a part of the residential tower buildings complex of Red Sea state. Rajagopal, Post Graduate Student, C.

These sensors are connected to an instrument such as a pile driving analyzerthat records, processes and displays data and results [2], [3], [4]. The cap must x4945-00 cylindrical, smooth, well-reinforced and of good quality concrete.


The dynamic or total reaction, Rdy is calculated for each hammer blow and plotted versus cumulative penetration for the whole set of astk. This shows a reasonable agreement between the two test results. The capacity of the hammer should be large enough to achieve sufficient pile settlement so that the resistance of the tested pile can be fully mobilized.

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. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This will enable an economical pile design and offer a considerable saving of cost for the project. The electronic theodolite is placed 3 to 5m from the pile head.

For mandrel driven piles, the mandrel may be instrumented in a similar d49450-0 to a driven pile provided that the mandrel is constructed of a single member with no joints.

This is very clear especially in the results of the pile of tower 1 project. 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 asym of towers 7 and 8.
