Static Load Testing – SLT

Static Load Testing – SLT

Static Load Testing

Static load testing on axially loaded piles is a traditional method used to determine the bearing capacity and is executed with the use of load cells, steel beams and counter piles or – anchors.

The static load test is carried out by pressing or pulling on the pile, on which you wish to determine the bearing capacity.


Static load testing provides information about:

  • Ultimate bearing capacity – compression
  • Ultimate bearing capacity – tension

Furthermore the static load testing can be combined with instrumented trial piles to achieve knowledge about skin- and toe resistance.
