Wagstaff Piling uses the latest in stress wave analysis techniques to assess the
quality of the installed foundation system. The Pile Driving Analyzer (PDA),
in routine use throughout the world, is used in the assessment of all pile types,
including both driven and cast-in-situ piles.
Measurements of strain and acceleration near the pile top enable the pile capacity, stresses, energy
transfer and resistance distribution to be accurately determined, together with an assessment
and extent of any damage. Field assessment provides immediate results to the engineer, with full
analysis possible using the industry leading wave equation analysis program, CAPWAP.
The dynamic testing technology delivers unparalleled quality control of the foundation system and
provides results in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
The use of the highly acclaimed GRLWEAP software allows detailed analysis of your piling project
before arriving on site. Potential problems can be identified and the appropriate hammer size
selected for your project.
The highly trained engineers of our specialised testing division, Piletest, provide a consultancy
service to clients throughout Australia and overseas.
