Test results may also provide information used to assess the distribution of side shear resistance along the pile d143, the amount of end bearing developed at the pile toe, and the long-term load-deflection behavior. A foundation designer may evaluate the test results to determine if, after applying an appropriate factor of safety, the pile or pile group has an ultimate static capacity and a deflection at service load satisfactory to support a specific foundation.

When performed as part of a multiple-pile test program, the designer may also use the results to e1143 the viability of different piling types and the variability of the test site.

Tests that achieve a failure load may help astk designer improve the efficiency of the foundation by reducing the piling length, quantity, or size. The quality of the result produced by this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.


Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. These methods apply to all deep foundations, referred to herein as pilesthat function in a manner similar to driven piles or cast-in-place piles, regardless of their method of installation, and may be used for testing single piles or pile groups.

The test results may not represent the long-term performance of a deep foundation. The engineer in responsible charge of the foundation design, referred to herein as the Engineer, shall approve any deviations, aatm, or additions to the requirements of this standard. Loading in Excess of Maintained Test Optional.

Imperative sentences indicate mandatory provisions. See Qstm X1 for comments regarding some of the factors influencing the interpretation of test results.

The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material.

These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. This standard also includes illustrations and appendices intended only for explanatory or advisory use.


The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. In this system, the pound [lbf] represents a unit of force [weight], while the unit for mass is slugs.

How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the asrm of regulatory limitations prior to use.
