Airport Terminal, Dynamic Test

Following the construction of a large number of CFA piles at the new Gibraltar airport terminal a non destructive form of testing was required to confirm the continuity and the integrity of the constructed piles.

Rock Foundations (Gibraltar) mobilised a small hammer rig which was able to impart sufficient energy into the pile.

A Dynamic Test apparatus was provided and connected to the test piles, on set up the hammer struck a clean blow to the pile allowing the testing apparatus to transmit a wave down the constructed length of the pile in order to determine its integrity.
