The trimming eliminates the polluted/dirty concrete and a minimum of sound concrete above the cut-off level, over the full cross section of a pile (Standard EN 1536: Execution of special geotechnical works: bored piles). Trimming shall be carried out without damaging the concrete, reinforcement and instrumentation of the pile. The FPS (Federation of Piling Specialists) has prepared an excellent document about breaking down of piles, which includes the most relevant technologies for pile trimming. The … Read more
Duong Do “A frame is assembled over the pile to be tested on top of which an amount of weight (a minimum 110 to 120% of maximum test load) is safely stacked. This generally takes the form of concrete blocks of regular dimensions and weight although steel ingots can be used provided that their weight can be assessed with reasonable accuracy. The size of the testing apparatus is generally a function of the pile size … Read more
