Fugro Loadtest has a wealth of experience with traditional load testing and can offer the complete service, using reaction systems or kentledge, bespoke ready assembled reaction systems, automated load control, the monitoring of the pile load and displacement, monitoring of additional instruments, reporting and analysis.
Ready Assembled Reaction Systems
Loadtest offers a range of reaction systems providing safe and rapid assembly to anchor piles for the load testing of foundation. Added safety is achieved by minimising the number of connections between the reaction system and the anchor piles and ensuring that they are at a level that is easily accessible from the ground.
Proprietary computer programs are used for analysis of pile load/settlement characteristics resulting from several years of research into pile behavior.
Subject to accurate and sufficient static load test results, such as those provided by the automated equipment, the displacement/time data can be modelled to project to the final settlement at each load and the significant pile/soil characteristics for a specific site, together with elastic shortening, developed skin friction and end bearing capacity.
