Learning objectives :   Program to include :
  • Assess capacity of bored piles by various field testing applications including static tests, dynamic tests and bi-directional tests.
  • Assess integrity of bored piles by various NDT methods including crosshole sonic logging, low strain integrity testing, thermal integrity profiling, Calipers, and other inspection devices.
  • Learn the advantages and limitations of various integrity and capacity methods in assessing bored piles and choose the appropriate methods for analysis.
  • Understand basic concepts of pda testing and advancements in dynamic load testing of bored piles.
  • Assess good PDA quality data and avoid pitfalls when using PDA data and capwap analysis results.
  • Learn the appropriate interpretation of integrity testing results and avoid pit falls when using integrity testing reports.
