PILE INTEGRITY (PIT)

A pile is a slender element cast in the ground or driven into it. Since pile construction as well as the final product are mostly invisible, engineers have often questioned their integrity, i.e. their compliance with project drawings and specifications. In fact, experience has shown that in piles, of all kind flaws may occur. The purpose of integrity testing is to discover such flaws before they can cause any damage.

METHODOLOGY:

Pulse-Echo Method (PEM)- The PET system utilizes the pulse-echo method. To test a pile, the user strikes it with PET’s lightweight handheld hammer. The resulting signal, or reflect gram, is captured by PET’s digital accelerometer. It is than transmitted to the computer to produce information about the pile’s length and shape. It complies the standard of ASTM D5882-00.

INFORMATION PROVIDED BY PIT:

Length of Pile

Flaws of Piling

Consistency of Pile Materials

Quantitative Pile Data

TEST ACCESSORIES:

Pulse Echo Tester

Laptop

Accelerometer Wax

Top Mount Accelerometer

2″ PIT Hammer
