A Correlation Between Dynamic and Static Pile Load Test Results

AbstractThree selected bored piles executed at Basrah area were tested both by
static and dynamic pile test procedures in order to correlate their results when evaluating the piles capacities. The correlation showed that the results are close to each other in terms of load- settlement relations, but on the other hand, end bearing capacity and skin friction values obtained by the dynamics tests are far from the real behavior of piles. The reason may be due to lack of experience of
crew that supervises the dynamic tests. They have to practice more dynamic tests and should build accumulated knowledge about the dynamic method of testing piles. The time is still early for the dynamic tests to replace the classical static test when evaluating piles capacities.
