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 ...

Accurate representation of the geotechnical resistance distribution is critical in evaluating the performance of piles and pile groups for design. A current practice is to infer the geotechnical resistance distribution based on measured changes in strain during ...

<p>The Geotechnical Engineering Bureau currently uses the method developed by Nordlund (see Appendices B and C) to determine the static capacity of a pile in cohesionless soil. This method has been shown to accurately predict pile lengths and capacities for ...
The author has addressed the pile foundation engineering quandary of negative skin friction by reducing it with a bitumen coat applied to the pile surface. Unfortunately, the author's introductory example intended to portray the need for the bitumen coat is ...

This paper describes the calculation of bearing capacity and settlement of piles and evaluates the situation when negative skin friction and dragload exist.
Reference: Background Notes for Demo Example for UniPile
A unified design of piles and pile groups is proposed where in capacity, residual compression, negative skin friction and settlement are related.

The old paper makes the mistake of separating the calculation of the settlement of the pile (pile group) from the transfer of the load applied to the pile head when determining the location of the neutral plane. The author's paper appears to have fallen into ...

A relative movement can also be induced when the soil settles in relation to the pile, or, in swelling soils, when the soil moves upward in relation to the pile. By definition, if the movement of the pile is downward, i.e., the shear stress induced in the ...

In this paper the results are given from 43 months of measurements of forces and bending moments on two instrumented precast piles driven through 40m of soft clay and 15m into underlying silt and sand.
