<p>Based on experience and extrapolation, it is found that the best way to predict pile behavior is to perform a pile loading test. In this study a comparison between the static and dynamic load tests results was made to evaluate the ability of the High Strain ...

<p>Pile used as the foundation in many cases may be subjected to inclined compressive loading condition. In such cases, overall behaviors of the piles are estimated from available conventional theoretical approaches. As there are limited experimental studies ...

Book on foundation design.Before a foundation design can be embarked on, the associated soil profile must be well established. The soil profile is compiled from three cornerstones of information: • in-situ testing results, particularly continuous tests, such ...

<p>In recent decade, dynamic load test is increasingly being used for pile load testing. Compare to static pile loading test, dynamic load test offers a considerable savings of time, cost and requires less space. This paper discuss the results of three dynamic ...

Nailed-slab System is a proposed alternative solution for rigid pavement problem on soft soils. Equivalent modulus of subgrade reaction (k’) can be used in designing of nailed-slab system. This modular is the cumulative of modulus of subgrade reaction from ...

This report provides information on the current practices used by state transportation agencies to develop pile driving criteria, with special attention paid to the use of test pile data in the process.

<p>Piles are used to transfer loads to a deeper bearing strata, support structures on soil too weak for spread footings and/or protect against scour. Pile driving is unique in the construction industry, in that the machinery used to install the product is ...

The paper presents the findings to reaffirm the principle that design of a piled foundation requires the analysis of the interaction between load transfer, soil settlement and pile toe load movement response.

This case history describes the foundation design and construction for the New Mississippi River Bridge, presently under construction in St. Louis, Missouri. The 1,500 ft (457.2 m) main span of the cable-stayed bridge is supported by two delta tower pylons ...
