The large diameter super-long bored pile's bearing capacity is generally very high. The self-balanced method is a new type of static load test method, and it is suitable for the test. At Yueqing Bay No. 1 Bridge, a pile with diameter of 2500 mm and length of 112.0 m was discussed in detail. The post grouting technology at pile bottom was used. The self-balanced method was carried out before and after post grouting. The double layer load cell test method was introduced. The ultimate bearing
