Geotechnical engineers, I have typically specified static load tests for our projects involving driven H piles to verify pile capacities. Some pile contractors are pushing to use dynamic testing instead. Can anyone provide some good resources that compares the two methods and perhaps highlights their pros and cons? Thanks in advance for any help.
