Applied Foundation Testing provides the full range of expert dynamic testing and analysis services. AFT engineers have been involved in dynamic testing (EDC / PDA) for over two decades and have performed thousands of dynamic tests. AFT knows the merits and limitations of dynamic testing and leverages the technology to make practical, unbiased engineering decisions – independently. Many of our engineers possess the Foundation QA Dynamic Pile Testing Certification. With our staff of Qualified Pile Driving Installation Inspectors, we also provide production foundation certification.

We employ these techniques with engineering judgment to determine optimum pile lengths and driving criteria.
