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 paper provides a review of recent instrumented load tests performed in these cemented calcareous materials. A total of 15 tests were selected from southeastern states based on the availability of good quality load test data and geotechnical information. ...

The API alpha method gave good agreement with test shaft capacities in clay for the bored piles and under prediceted the capacities for the driven piles. The CPT and CPTu methods underestimated the shaft resistance by 35% to 60% for bored piles and more so ...

This paper is intended to add to this framework by detailing key results from an experimental investigation into the response of the foundation subjected to a variety of cyclic loading regimes. The model tests are conducted at 1g using a complex loading apparatus ...

This paper describes the calculation of bearing capacity and settlement of piles and evaluates the situation when negative skin friction and dragload exist.

The method used for calculating pile capacity is based on the effective stress approach applying beta and Nt-coefficients to determine the shaft and toe resistances. The capacities of the two driven piles, the pipe pile and the H-pile, are assumed to be about ...
