COMPARISON OF PILE DESIGN FOLLOWING TWO STANDARDS: EC7 AND AS2159 (2016)
In normal design practice one method is chosen from the many available and applied to a site. In this paper two case histories are examined, where there is sufficient information to investigate and compare different design methods, including different methods of selecting design parameters. Because the projects are completed, there is information from boreholes and CPTs, from instrumented trial piles, working pile tests and dynamic load tests. Comparisons will include various design methods included in EC7, and also with AS 2159:2009.
