Quick Statnamic Facts

  • 20 Statnamic devices world-wide
  • 12 Statnamic testing companies
  • Over 700 contract Statnamic load tests performed in 16 countries
  • Over 80 published papers, including papers from 2 International Statnamic Seminars
  • More than 20 Universities currently researching Statnamic
  • Acceptance and use by 13 State DOT’s, US Army Corps of Engineers, FHWA and various agencies worldwide
 
Features of STATIC Load Tests
 
  Advantages  
  - Static behaviour
- Maintained load
- Cyclic loading
- No pile damage
- Direct load measurement (calibrated load cell)
- Direct displacement measurement
 
  Disadvantages  
- Expensive
- Time consuming
- Different procedures

Features of DYNAMIC Load Tests
  Advantages  
  - Economic
- Quick
 
  Disadvantages  
 

- Indirect load measurements
strain transducers : F = E.A. e
concrete piles : E variable
bored piles: E and A variable

- Indirect displacement measurements accelerometers, u = ff a.dt
- Calibration to static load test
- Experienced high level educated engineers
- Chance on pile damage
- In many cases capacity not mobilised
