In cases where we do not get the as-built length of the piles (due to the age of the structure, information is not anymore available), how do we proceed to the test?

In all cases you need to calibrate the wave velocity. If you do not know the expected length, you can always play with an approximate wave velocity of 3.500m/s to 4.500m/s.

For these types of cases, you will use an approximate value of the wave velocity. It will be easy to find defects by using the comparison mode and comparing the graphics of different piles. However, the location of the defect, and the total length of the pile, will be always an approximate value of the reality.

On the other side, the wave velocity can be calibrated using other apparatus, like pundit 200 using cross section wave velocity measurement.
