  Dynamic Load Testing is conducted independent of pile installation process. The test has primary goal of assesment of bearing capacity . It is applicable to drilled shafts, continious flight auger, Cast-in-situ and driven piles
Dynamic Pile Monitoring is conducted during the impact driving of steel, concrete or timber piles to contribute to safe and economical pile installation. Most important results of this test are soil resistance to driving, hammer performance, dynamic pile stresses during driving and pile integrity.
Soft ware used is CAse Pile Wave Analysis Program (CAPWAP) - Determines
Static soil resistance
Simulates a static load test
Static shaft resistance
Magnitude and distribution
Static end bearing
Stresses at any point along the shaft
Energy transferred from the ram to the foundation.
