Dynamic Foundation Measurement training for BAM International

Day 1 Theory First

 

In February 2015 Allnamics trained 6 staff members of BAM international in the use of the Allnamics’ PDR for proper data acquisition during Pile Driving Analysis and Dynamic Load Testing.

 

As usual the training started with a day in the Allnamics office to cover the theory, during which the trainees had to derive equations for the one-dimensional wave theory. For some this is pretty tough, but after this session participants always have a good idea of what happens in a pile as it is driven into the ground and they can not only interpret field measurements but also distinguish between good and bad data sets.

 

The second day was a field day. Thanks to the company Hektec all trainees had the opportunity to install sensors as well as connect and operate the equipment. This is important aspect of mastering the process, and with these sensors real data was then obtained during an actual hammer blow later in the day.

 

The third and final day was back in the office, during which not only the data collected the previous day were reviewed, but also many data sets from projects Allnamics performed over the years around the world.

 

Obviously the training does not necessarily end at the end of this third day when the participants leave with the course material. Allnamics staff is always available to support the course participants whenever they need some additional help.

With the PDR data can be acquired to monitor the pile driving process but it can also be used during Static Load Testing (SLT) and Rapid Load Testing (RLT) of deep foundation elements.
