DA-W is a program that allows dynamic pile test data collected using the Pile Driving Analyser to be processed and displayed on a PC. Using the program Pile Analysis engineers interpret dynamic load test data for soil resistance and for driven piles compression and tension stresses in the pile. The program also computes input energy from the pile driving hammer blow by blow this allows hammer efficiency to be assessed. The displayed data can also be inspected for pile integrity, the PDA-W program automatically indicating locations of potential concern.
The PDA-W program provides hammer blow data for CAPWAP analysis.
