Product code : 792



    Purpose of the test: Determine the characteristic value of the single pile vertical bearing force;
    Testing method: cycle loading to maximum testing load or failure.
    Testing procedure: arcordance to testing standard: TCVN 9393:2012 - “Piles - Standard test method in situ for piles under axial compressive load”; ASTM D1143 or equivalent standards of other countries
