Bi-directional Static Load Tests (BDSLT)

Bi-directional Static Load Tests (BDSLT)

The BDSLT method of pile load test utilizes hydraulically operated jack embedded inside the concrete of the pile. Pressure will be applied to the load cell (into the pile) by hydraulic pump on the ground. During the process, the load cell will expand, pushing the upper shaft upwards and the lower shaft downwards, which mobilizes the side resistance and base resistance of the upper and lower lengths of the pile. With this method, BDSLT provides separate measurements of a pile’s end-bearing and skin friction along the pile’s length.

In Geonamics, we have our own skilled testing and reporting team who can provide a tailored the best solution according to the needs of our clients.

Advantages of Bi-Directional Load Test (BDSLT) :

  • High Test Load Capacity
  • Improved Safety
  • No Space or Access Problem
  • Test for Working Piles
  • Time Saving (One Day Test Setup)
  • Embedded Strain Gauge for Load Distribution Analysis
  • Piles with Deep Cut Off Levels
