Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 September 2007
Status: inactive
Page Count: 13
ICS Code (Earthworks. Excavations. Foundation construction. Underground works): 93.020
scope:

The test methods described in this standard measure the axial deflection of a vertical or inclined deep foundation when loaded in static axial tension. These methods apply to all deep foundations, referred to herein as "piles," that function in a manner similar to driven piles or cast in place piles, regardless of their method of installation, and may be used for testing single piles or pile groups. The test results may not represent the long-term performance of a deep foundation.

This standard provides minimum requirements for testing deep foundations under static axial tensile load. Plans, specifications, provisions, or any combination thereof prepared by a qualified engineer may provide additional requirements and procedures as needed to satisfy the objectives of a particular test program. The engineer in responsible charge of the foundation design, referred to herein as the engineer, shall approve any deviations, deletions, or additions to the requirements of this standard.

Apparatus and procedures herein designated "optional" may produce different test results and may be used only when approved by the engineer. The word "shall" indicates a mandatory provision, and the word "should" indicates a recommended or advisory provision. Imperative sentences indicate mandatory provisions.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
