APEWAVE has been developed by Profound, a pioneer in manufacturing of pile testing equipment as well as foundation testing. Profound develops and markets Foundation Pile Diagnostic and Monitoring Systems, including PDA, Statnamic, Pile Integrity Testing, and the wave equation program TNOWAVE.
One module of this program is PDPWAVE, which can be applied for professional driveability studies. With the results of PDPWAVE the piling engineer can:
- Predict driveability
- Optimize the selection of the impact hammer
- Select the maximum energy level without damaging the pile
- Increase the efficiency of the pile-driving set-up.
- Optimize the energy transfer, including cushion and pile adapters.
APEWAVE is a simplified and user-friendly version of Profound's PDPWAVE with built-in libraries for APE's impact hammers and related components as well as sheet piles and H-piles. With the APEWAVE program the user can get a first impression about driveability and produce impact diagrams, blow count graphs, and bearing graphs.
