Description

At present, piles are used in most of the high buildings as their foundations. Almost all bridges are supported on piles. Anything wrong with the underground piles will destroy the buildings. The test of piles, therefore, is very necessary. One of the ordinary pile tests is static-load-applying test, i.e. putting a heavy load on pile to observe its descent. Another method is drilling a hole and taking core for checking the integrity of piles.
