The Dynamic Load Tester for High Strain Testing on Deep Foundations

In this issue of Piling Canada, Pile Dynamic's Dynamic Load Tester (DLT) is featured. On page 59, the DLT is announced as "The Next Evolution in Dynamic Load Testing". The article discusses the benefits of using high strain dynamic testing on drilled shafts, a practice that used to be reserved for driven piles. With the DLT, high strain tests are performed after the shaft has been created. With the interest in drilled shafts growing in the industry, high strain dynamic testing with the DLT will become a more common practice.
