Preparing for
pile testing

Demonstration,Testing & prediction event

One of the conference days will be dedicated to practical applications of stress wave theory to piles. On reclaimed land at the Port of Rotterdam (Maasvlakte), a site will be prepared for pile testing, offering comparison and analysis of results of different testing methods. Tests will have been performed in advance, the results of which will be presented during this event. Testing methods will be demonstrated throughout the day, as well as installation equipment for sheets piles, precast and in-situ piles, and (offshore) monopiles. Advantages of different pile installation methods will be demonstrated in real time during a pile driving competition.

The demonstration day is in collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam.
