AATech’s Bi-Directional Static Loading Test (BDSLT) is the most innovative static load testing technique in the industry. The accuracy and speed of AATech’s testing method has made bi-directional testing an invaluable tool. Traditionally, BDSLT has been the most trusted means of testing pile foundations axial capacity. AATech engineers have developed automated testing systems and data acquisition software to eliminate human errors and to increase the reliability and accuracy of measurements in load testing.
This state-of-the-art testing method uses the sonic wave propagation theory to check the material quality and integrity of newly placed drilled shafts, seal footings and slurry or diaphragm walls, and other structures. This method is gaining popularity in the industry for its versatility and reliability.
Dynamic testing is a versatile test for pile capacity, performance of the driving system, and pile integrity. It is gaining wide acceptance in North America and overseas as an alternative to expensive and time-consuming static loading tests. The procedure for this test is also explained in ASTM Standard D4945-00.
Our non-destructive testing method is one of the most versatile means of quality assurance when it comes to cast-in-place concrete foundations.
Static load testing is an in situ type of load testing used in geotechnical investigation to determine the bearing capacity of deep foundations prior to the construction of a building. It differs from the statnamic load test and dynamic load testing in that the pressure applied to the pile is slower.
Evaluation of the entire cross-section and the entire length of the deep foundation element measuring heat generated by curing cement to assess the quality of drilled shafts/bored piles, augured cast in place (ACIP), continuous flight auger (CFA), or drilled displacement piles, slurry walls, barrettes, soil nails and jet grouted columns.
