Low-strain, non-destructive pile integrity testing
Cost-effective and efficient, pile integrity testing is a popular method of determining the condition of piles without the need for costly excavations, physically exposing the piles or disturbing the ground.
Often referred to as low-strain integrity testing or PIT testing, this non-destructive method of structural investigation sees an experienced engineer use a hand-held sensing device to record and interpret the response of the pile to the impact of a light, specially-designed hammer.
Providing data in real time, this type of testing is commonly used for…
- Estimating pile toe depth
- Identifying differences in concrete quality within the pile (segregating, honeycombing and so on)
- Helping our structural investigation specialists detect inclusions, joints or cracks within the pile
- Highlighting any differences in diameter within the length of the pile
