Integrity Testing solutions

The expertise of GRL Engineers is key to selecting the right test for each situation.

When it comes to assessing foundation integrity, GRL offers its clients various options, including Thermal Integrity Testing (TIP), Crosshole Sonic Logging (CSL), and Low Strain Integrity Testing (PIT). The expertise of GRL Engineers is key to selecting the right test for each situation.

Thermal Integrity Profiling is a technology that utilizes the heat generated by curing of concrete to assess the integrity and quality of drilled shafts, augered cast in place (ACIP) piles and other concrete foundations. From the test results, necks, bulges, variations in concrete cover and the as-built shape of the shaft, including steel cage eccentricities, can be characterized.

Crosshole Sonic Logging (CSL) assesses the integrity of drilled shafts. The GRL engineer interprets data in the field for delayed pulse arrivals (or low signal strength) which indicate potential defects, and later reprocesses the data in the office.

Low Strain Impact Integrity Testing is a non-destructive pile testing method for integrity assessments of augered cast-in-place piles, drilled shafts or driven concrete or timber piles. If major defects exist, test results may be interpreted to estimate their magnitude and location. Test results may also be used to estimate pile length.
