ASTM WK67553

    New Test Method for Measuring the depth of deep foundations by the parallel seismic method

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.11 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Typical applications of the method. Description of the necessary setup and procedure for performing the test. Recording the foundation identification and test results.


    deep foundation, existing structures, elastic waves


    When adding load on existing structures or excavating near them, knowing the actual foundation depth is of utmost importance. The proposed method is applied when no such information is available and where the top of the foundation is inaccessible. It will be used by geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as local authorities, highway departments and contractors.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
