A precast concrete pile was driven 11.0 m into a sand deposit and subjected to three compression and one tension static loading tests. By means of strain-gage instrumentation, the loads imposed in the pile during the tests were determined. The observed load distributions appeared to suggest the existence of a critical depth. However, when the load data were supplemented with the residual load acting before the start of the tests, the appearance of critical depth disappeared. Instead, the… 
Soil Set-up, Variable Concrete Modulus, and Residual Load for Tapered Instrumented Piles in Sand
Two 20 m long, strain-gage instrumented, closed-toe, 350-mm Monotube piles with a 7 m long bottom section tapering down to a 200-mm diameter at the pile toe were driven into a deposit of silty sand
ANALYSIS OF LOAD TESTS ON PILES DRIVEN THROUGH CALCAREOUS DESERT SANDS. TECHNICAL NOTE
The ultimate bearing capacity of short, precast concrete piles driven into calcareous sands was examined by pile-load tests carried out at two sites in Kuwait. The piles had a 0.3 m-by-0.3 m square
Axial compressive capacity of driven piles in sand: a method including post-driving residual stresses
In this paper, empirical formulae were developed between the well-known pile bearing capacity factors (Nq and β) and parameters which include friction angle of sand, relative density, average
Stacked pile solution for axial load–settlement analysis of driven piles in multi-layered soils
The load–settlement (Q–s) response of deep foundations is influenced by the soil stiffness. One of the most common methods of installing these foundations is the process of driving, which changes the
End-bearing capacity of driven piles in sand using the stress characteristics method: analysis and implementation
The method of stress characteristics has been employed to compute the end-bearing capacity of driven piles. The dependency of the soil internal friction angle on the stress level has been
A review of CPT based axial pile design in the Netherlands
Abstract Because of the deltaic nature of the Netherlands, deep soft soil deposits are widespread. Due to the population density exploitation of underground space is vital for commercial developments
Calculation of piles based on CPT results in POLAND
The paper presents a capacity of driven precast piles prediction method based on the results of CPT tests. The pile settlement equal to 10% of pile diameter is assumed as a criteria of pile capacity.
Field Stiffness Reduction Evaluations from Back-Analysis of Pile Load Tests
Starting with the fundamental small-strain shear modulus (Gmax), the mechanical nonlinear stress-strain-strength behavior of soil manifests itself in the form of stiffness reduction under loading.
Comparing CPT and pile base resistance in sand
The comprehensive database of load tests on closed-ended piles in sand has been re-examined to study the relationship between CPT resistance, qc, and ultimate base capacity, qb. The aim is to
Toe Bearing Capacity of Piles from Cone Penetration Test ( CPT ) Data
SYNOPSIS A direct CPT method is proposed for determining the toe capacity of a single displacement pile. The method makes use of a simple mathematical rule for determining the average cone

Load Tests Results on Friction Piles in Sand
As part of the design of an important pile foundation, an extensive testing program has been carried out in order to determine the type and the necessary characteristics of the pile best suited to
Prediction of Pile Capacity
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
UNIFIED DESIGN OF PILES AND PILE GROUPS
A unified design of piles and pile groups is proposed wherein capacity, residual compression, negative skin friction, and settlement are related. First, the location of the neutral plane is
NEGATIVE SKIN FRICTION AND SETTLEMENT OF PILES
A relative movement between a pile and a soil produces shear stress along the interface of the pile and the soil. Such movement can be induced by a push-load on the pile pressing it down into the
DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF DRILLED SHAFTS
An excellent subsurface investigation is necessary. Good construction techniques are needed, as well as proper inspection. The shear strength of the supporting soil is reduced during construction.
