The quality of the result produced by this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. See Appendix X1 for comments regarding some of the factors influencing the interpretation of test results. In this system, the pound [lbf] represents a unit of force [weight], while the unit for mass is slugs.
When performed as part of a multiple-pile test program, the results may also be used to assess the viability of different piling types and the variability of the test site. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.
Tests that achieve a failure load may help the designer improve the efficiency of the foundation by reducing the piling length, quantity, or size. Test results may also provide information used to assess the distribution of side shear resistance along the pile shaft, the amount of end bearing developed at the pile toe, and the long-term load-deflection behavior. The test results may not represent the long-term performance of a deep foundation.
How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope. Cyclic Loading Test Optional. Grout Systems performs compression load testing based on ASTM D, the standard test method for deep foundations under static axial compressive load.
These methods apply to all deep foundations, referred to herein as pilesthat function in a manner similar to driven piles or cast-in-place piles, regardless of their method of installation, and may be used for testing single piles or pile groups. Imperative sentences indicate mandatory provisions. Compression load tests apply to all deep foundations that function in a manner similar to driven piles or cast-in-place piles, regardless of their method of installation, d11433 may be used for testing single piles or pile groups.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Constant Aastm Increment Test Optional. The engineer in responsible charge of the foundation atm, referred to herein as the Engineer, shall approve any deviations, deletions, or astmm to the requirements of this standard.
These notes ast footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not asym considered as requirements of the standard. The test measures the axial deflection of a vertical or inclined deep foundation when loaded in static axial compression. The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
Test results may also provide information used to assess the distribution of side shear resistance along the pile shaft, the amount of end bearing developed at the pile toe, and the long-term load-deflection behavior.
Test results can be evaluated to determine if the pile or pile group has an ultimate static capacity and a deflection at service load satisfactory to support a specific foundation. Interested in compression pile load testing, contact the experienced team at Grout Systems.
Constant Time Interval Test Optional. When performed as part of a multiple-pile test program, the designer may also use the results to assess the viability of different piling types and the variability of the test d143.
Compression (ASTM D1143)
Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. A foundation designer may evaluate the test results to determine if, after applying an appropriate factor of safety, the pile or pile group has an ultimate static capacity and a deflection at service load satisfactory to support a specific foundation.
Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. This standard also includes illustrations and appendices intended only for explanatory or advisory use. Compression Load Tests provide the most reliable relationship between the axial ast, applied to a deep foundation and the resulting axial movement.
