Theoretically, for a fixed end pile (no skin friction and infinite end bearing) the mobilized capacity would be equal to two times the impact force. In practice a mobilized capacity higher than about 1.3 times the impact force is unusual, and it is very unlikely that the mobilized capacity could exceed 1.6 times the impact force (FMX).
