Lateral Load Test

Product code : 793


    Purpose of the test: Determine the value of horizontal bearing capacity under the state of zero vertical load upon the pile top
    Testing method: cycle loading to maximum testing load, maximum displacement or failure.
    Testing procedure: arcordance to testing standard: ASTM D3966 or equivalent standards of other countries and Designer 's specifications.
    Testing steps:
    • Preparation works.
    • Process the head of the test piles.
    • Determine the load location on pile body.
    • Install counterweight system.
    • Install hydraulically jacks.
    • Install monitoring system.
    • Testing.
     Testing report:
    • Project name and location.
    • The employer, designer, pilling contractor and the testing agency.
    • Document of test piles.
    • Testing result sumary.
    • Tested pile records/ Field testing records.
    • Load-displacement relationship graphs (Q-s).
