This test method covers the procedure for testing vertical or batter piles individually to determine the force and velocity response of the pile to an impact force applied axially by a pile-driving hammer to the top of the pile. This test method is applicable to deep foundation units that function in a manner similar to foundation piles, regardless of their method of installation, provided that they are receptive to high-strain impact testing. These elements can include drilled shafts, micropiles, and continuous flight auger cast piles.
Except for Section 5.2, this standard is in general conformance to ASTM D 4945.
