Load testing procedural for 69.5 tons working load

1) Preparation

The selected pile has to be cut-off or built up to a appropriate level for placement of the
necessary loading equipment. Where the bearing surface of the test pile is not at its mild-
steel end cap, the brunt pile head has to be built-up such that a horizontal bearing surface
that is perpendicular to the axis of the test pile is available.

2) Method of loading

The load test is applied by means of a jack which obtained its reaction from the kentledge
heavier than the required test load. The kentledge will be the Jack-In pile equipment made up of
counter weight approx. 1 ton to 2 tons each stacked neatly on top of each other. The pressure
gauge used shall be calibrated by an approved laboratory before commencement of load test.
The sequence of stacking of test blocks shall be at the discretion of the foreman on site.

3) Measurement of settlement

The level and staff method would be used to measure pile settlement.

The surveyor's level shall be mounted on a rigidly anchored support. Scale rules (4nos.) shall
be used for taking settlement reading to an accuracy of 0.5mm. Two nos. of scale rules shall
be securely fixed to the pile for checking its settlement. Another two are fixed on two separate
stable permanent support away from the kentledge to serve as bench marks or datum. By
taking the difference in scale reading between the scale on the pile and its datum, the pile
settlement could be established.

4) Test proper

In the First Cycle, the test pile is incrementally loaded to its working load of 69.5 tons
