What is unique ?
iPile benefits from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 4) for transmitting acceleration data to a mobile-based tablet.
All you need to do is to place iPile sensor over the tip of the pile, and start recording data on the tablet.
iPile is equipped with innovative low voltage acceleration sensor that helps reduce ambient noise, and record acceleration data with high precision.
Analyze and Report
iPile comes with a powerful and user-friendly app for data recording and analysis.
Dynamic data visualization, and pile length measurement helps you obtain crucial information about pile integrity right on site.

While Pile Integrity Testing, or as ASTM D5882 describes “low strain impact integrity testing” offers a cost-effective and fast approach to assess the integrity of piles and deep foundations, it is not the RIGHT answer for identifying or quantifying other deficiencies in the components. The following article summarizes what not to expect from pile integrity Read more about What NOT TO EXPECT from Pile Integrity Testing[…]
Pile Integrity Testing (PIT) is a non-destructive testing method for evaluating the unknown length and integrity of piles and deep foundations. The basic concept behind the technique is determining the velocity (required) and force (optional) response of pile induced by an impact device (normally, a handheld hammer). Pile Integrity Testing works best for long structural component such Read more about Practical Considerations in Pile Integrity Testing[…]
Pile Integrity Test can be used to determine the integrity of piles. The method works best for long structural component such as driven concrete piles, cast-in place concrete piles, concrete filled steel pipe piles, timber piles, structural columns. The method works based on measuring and analyzing the velocity (required) and force (optional) response of pile. Read more about Applications and Limitations of Pile Integrity Test[…]
Deficiency of concrete materials is a common problem in Bored Pile construction. Integrity Problems of Concrete Piles is a major problem n in large diameter piles. This is specially true, because integrity problem can affect the load distribution properties of concrete piles. Piles and deep foundations transmit top structure loads to strong substrate through friction and/or Read more about 5 Integrity Problems of Concrete Piles[…]
Safety, reliability and satisfactory performance of structures require a well-planned maintenance program, as well as remedial actions in short and mid-term. Existing structures that are designed in accordance with older design codes or were built by older construction practices may need to be extensively repaired, rehabilitated, or replaced within the next few years. The remedial Read more about Reuse of Existing Piles – How NDT Can Help[…]
Concrete piles and drilled shafts are an important category of foundations. Despite their relatively high cost, they become necessary when we want to transfer the loads of a a heavy superstructure (bridge, high rise building, etc.) to the lower layers of soil. Pile integrity test (PIT), or as ASTM D5882 refers to it as low strain Read more about How to Perform Pile Integrity Test[…]
Structure inspection manuals such as the Ontario Structure Inspection Manual (OSIM) mostly emphasizes on the visual inspection and physical condition of bridge structures. The visual inspection methodology in this guideline consists of close up visual assessment of defects in the superstructure and substructure. This methodology is limited to inspection of elements that are at the arms Read more about How to Evaluate Concrete Piles?[…]
Piles and drilled shafts are an important category of foundations. Despite their relatively high cost, they become necessary when we want to transfer the loads of a a heavy superstructure (bridge, high rise building, etc.) to the lower layers of soil. Another reason for choosing a pile foundation is the condition and quality of soil layers. Read more about Why and When to Use Concrete Piles?[…]
