Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 41-10. Developing Production Pile Driving Criteria from Test Pile Data

Practices vary widely nationwide for developing production pile driving criteria from test pile data obtained from static load testing, rapid load testing, or high strain dynamic testing with signal matching analysis. The FHWA pile design/construction manual has some information and guidance on this issue. However, the guidance in that manual is not adequate to insure that this issue is handled consistently. This study will gather and synthesize information on the current state-of-practice to supplement the FHWA manual. Recently, AASHTO Technical Committee T-15 conducted a nationwide survey of the state DOT's that specifically attempted to gather opinions on the issue. This synthesis would gather the practices various states use, allowing others using the synthesis to identify the common elements as well as the differences, and possibly advantages and disadvantages of each approach, especially as applied to specific situations or site conditions.
