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 establish the origin of low reported values of qb/qc which contrast with continuum models that suggest qb = qc for steady deep penetration. Partial embedment of the pile tip into a hard layer underlying weak material has been accounted for by weighting qc. Partial mobilisation has been accounted for by… CONTINUE READING
