    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the procedure for determining the integrity of individual vertical or inclined piles by measuring and analyzing the velocity (required) and force (optional) response of the pile induced by an (hand held hammer or other similar type) impact device applied axially to the pile normally at the pile head. This test method is applicable to long structural elements that function in a manner similar to foundation piles, regardless of their method of installation provided that they are receptive to low strain impact testing.

    1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Fig. 1
