Construction issues when using drilled shafts for bridge foundations
Reference: Geo-Strata, May-June 2011
<p>One of the most common ways to stabilize the slope is to use the row of drilled shaft. The goal of this investigation is to introduce applicable methodology to calculate the factors of safety and force, on the shaft, in the static condition. By using the ...

Construction issues when using drilled shafts for bridge foundations.
Reference: Deep foundation, Spring 2010
On the basis of load tests undertaken during the course of major projects, it has been established, that drilled shafts show particular behaviour with respect to skin friction in Cyprus alluvial formations. In general, skin friction and pile capacity as determined ...
