Pile Dynamics, Inc. – Multifunctional Pile Driving Analyzer® (PDA)

Presented by: Ryan C. Allin

Pile Driving Analyzer® (PDA-8G) system is the most widely employed system for Dynamic Load Testing and Pile Driving Monitoring in the world. PDA tests assess the capacity of several piles in a single day. The PDA-8G also evaluates shaft integrity, driving stresses, and hammer energy when monitoring installation, and comes complete with CAPWAP®, GRLWEAP, and iCAP® software. Additionally, the PDA-8G has several add-on software capabilities including SPT Analyzer software to determine the energy transferred to SPT rods; DLT software to monitor high strain dynamic load tests on drilled excavations using a drop weight system; and SLT software to evaluate the load resistance behavior of deep foundations prior to structure construction. The PDA-8G is offered with wireless sensors, WiFi or traditional cabled options, as well as field-to-office data transmission with SiteLink®.
