„ Perform in accordance either ASTM D1143, D3689, D3966.

„ All 3 test methods are applicable to all kind of piles, i.e. driven,
cast-in-situ, injection piles.
„ Type of reaction systems: kentledge system, reaction frame or
cable anchors
„ The method will provide data on movement (displacement) of pile
under applied load (force).

SLT Test Procedure

„ Step 1: Record applicable project information.

„ Step 2: Determine load application system and sequence.
„ Step 3: Preparation of the load-application system.
„ Step 4: Pile head preparation and placement of transducers.
„ Step 5: Taking measurements.
„ Step 6: Data quality checking.
„ Step 7: Plot graphs and interpretation of test results.
„ Step 8: Determination of ultimate or failure load.

Please refer to Piling Handbook

for test procedure details.
