Top 5 Features of the Atlas Pipe Pile App

There is a lot to think about when you are working on a deep foundations project – from the type of soil you are facing to how far into the ground you need to drill to stabilize, the last thing you want to think about is which ERW straight seam pipe pile to use at the job site. That’s why we came up with a mobile app that you can use on the go. The Atlas Pipe Piles Catalog App. When you are exploring the app, make sure you check out these top five features first:

Dynamic Testing of Driven Piles

Dynamic Pile Testing
As a continuing service to our clients, Atlas Tube routinely enlists the services of industry leaders in matters related to driven pipe piles. This is the fourth in a series of topics provided at our request by Wagner Komurka Geotechnical Group, Inc.

Dynamic testing of driven piles is a valuable, cost-effective tool for the design and construction control of foundation projects which utilize driven piling. Testing is performed during the pile driving process, and consists of attaching strain gages and accelerometers to a pile near its head. The instrumentation system continuously records measured strains and accelerations in a pile, which are induced downward in the pile by high-strain impacts from each hammer blow, and are reflected upward in the pile by soil or rock resistance, or changes in pile impedance (changes in cross-section, or from the pile toe). The data collected by dynamic testing can be viewed in real time during driving, and for each hammer blow can provide such information as:
