PIT-W is the Pile Integrity Tester (PIT-X) analysis and output program for Windows. Velocity records only or both force and velocity records taken on top of concrete or timber pile by the PIT-X can be interpreted. The analyses (such as time domain analysis, frequency domain analysis, two-velocity analysis and profile analysis) offered by the PIT-W software cater for either Sonic Echo or Transient Dynamic Response test data.
- PIT-W allows Pile Analysis to obtain data from the PIT-X, analyze records in the time or frequency domain, vary basic parameters, plot data and produce a high quality report consisting of interpretation plots, tables or multiple column summary plots.
- PROFILE can run as an independent application or be called from PIT-W to perform a pile profile analysis, two velocity analysis or more detailed frequency analysis on selected records. Interactively Pile Analysis engineer can use this program to generate most likely pile impedance versus depth plot or if the selected records contain two velocities, using two-velocity analysis Pile Analysis engineer can generate a likely upward travelling wave.
- Using PIT-S Pile Analysis engineers can input pile shape, soil layer properties and characteristics of the low strain hammer impact, including point of impact, and display the velocity reflections versus time and versus pile length that a pile subject to a Pile Integrity Test (PIT) under such conditions would produce.
- PIT-S is a simulation software package that, in its most basic application, does not require data collection. It can, however, greatly enhance analysis when used in conjunction with data obtained with the Pile Integrity Tester: The curves simulated by PIT-S may be superimposed over measured curves for a simple signal matching process and a simplified investigation of the cause of observed reflections.
- PIT-S allows the display of force and velocity curves or of the velocity curves at different locations along the pile (integrity testing of piles integral to a structure is accomplished by analyzing 2 velocity curves) simulate integrity tests performed with the PIT model FV. The software also shows acceleration and displacement data and includes a slow motion animated display of the wave transmission and reflections that is particularly educational.
