Scope

1.1 This test method covers procedures for checking the homogeneity and integrity of concrete in deep foundation such as bored piles, drilled shafts, concrete piles or augercast piles. This method can also be extended to diaphragm walls, barrettes, dams etc. In this test method, all the above will be designated “deep foundation elements.” The test measures the propagation time and relative energy of an ultrasonic pulse between parallel access ducts (crosshole) or in a single tube (single hole) installed in the deep foundation element. This method is most applicable when performed in tubes that are installed during construction.1.2 Similar techniques with different excitation sources exist, but these techniques are outside the scope of this test method.1.3 All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026.1.4 The method used to specify how data are collected, calculated, or recorded in this test method
