Using client provided soil stratigraphy data, driving behaviour and in most cases driving success, can be pre-determined in advance of any foundation installation operation. Early evaluation of drivability offers significant savings potential by ensuring integrity and mitigating early conductor/pile refusal.
CIS offers comprehensive driveability engineering analysis using leading industry GRLWEAP Wave Equation Analysis and OPILE software to determine:
- The Soil Resistance to Driving (SRD) and drivability profile
- Driving fatigue assessment
- Back analysis of SRD based on driving records
With a vast piling legacy, CIS has an extensive archive of historic drivability studies that when combined with an equivalently extensive archive of real drive log data, we are able to provide clients with superior drivability assurance, particularly valuable in the early stages of Well design.
