StatRapid Load Testing Equipment

StatRapid - for Rapid Load Testing (Pseudo Static Testing) of Foundation Piles

 

StatRapid is an economic and reliable alternative for static load testing, when the performance requirements  (load displacement behaviour and pile capacity) of foundation piles have to checked.

StatRapid is a joint development of  Cape-Holland and Allnamics. It consist of a Rapid Load Testing device manufactured by Cape-Holland and  monintoring equipment (PDR, Reyca) and belonging prediction, monitoring and analysis software,   manufactured by Allnamics. StatRapid is based on the following concept:

  • Applying a pseudo static long duration load to the pile and soil according rapid load principles .
  • Analysis of measurement results according to user-independent principles (Unloading Point Method – UPM)(CUR 230).
  • Measurements and Analysis Results available on site.
  • Safe and reliable operation of the StatRapid system.
  • Modular drop mass. Amount of mass to be transported can be optimized for the load test requirements
  • Internal hydraulic lifting system for adjustable drop heights up to 4m.
  • Mechanism for catching the drop mass to prevent rebound.
  • Internal drop mass release system.
  • Modular and adjustable elastic-rubber spring system.
  • Method of characteristics based simulation/prediction software (Allwave-RLT) for selecting in advance the right combination of drop mass and spring system for certain pile and soil conditions and to check whether rapid load testing conditions can be met and checking pile stresses
  • Multiple cycles testing with increasing loading cycles for accurate and controlled testing.
  • The loading cycle duration is controlled by the number of springs and the amount of drop mass.
  • The loading cycle peak value is controlled by the drop height.
  • Measurements performed with calibrated load cells, accelerometers and optical measuring device (Reyca) for measuring the dynamic pile head displacement.
  • High quality data acquisition system (Allnamics-PDR) and Wi-Fi data transfer option.
  • Module for Pile integrity testing integrated in the PDR system.
  • Monitoring and reporting software (Allnamics-RLT).
  • Measurements and test procedure in accordance with the ASTM D7383-10, and the draft Euro-code (EN_ISO_-22477-X_ (e)).
  • Analysis of the results according to the Dutch CUR recommendations (CUR 230) taking into account time-dependent effects.
  • Availability of measured signals in ASCII or Excel format allowing  for independent analysis
  • Non-destructive Testing Method.
