Suggested Method of Test for Load-Deflection Relationship for Individual Piles Under Axial Tensile Load


This method covers a procedure for testing individual foundation piles and piers to determine the relationship between the vertical tensile load (applied at the top of the pile on the center or vertical axis of the pile) and the deflection of the pile. The method is divided into the following six sections: apparatus, pretest information, loading device, apparatus for measuring deflection, procedure, and report.
