Standard Method of Test for Rapid Axial Compressive Load Testing of Deep Foundation Units
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 2013



This method covers the procedure for testing a vertical or inclined pile to determine the displacement response of the pile to an axial compressive load pulse of a preselected target peak force.

This test method is applicable to all deep foundation units that function in a manner similar to piles, regardless of their method of installation.

Two alternative procedures are provided:

  • Procedure A uses a combustion gass pressure apparatus to produce the required axial compression force pulse
  • Procedure B uses a cushioned drop mass apparatus to produce the requi9red axial compression force pulse.
