In Part I of this report the results are given from 43 months of measurements of forces and bending moments on two instrumented precast piles driven through 40 m (130 ft) of soft clay and 15 m (50 ... 
Field test of a floating thermal pile in sensitive clay
The response of floating pile foundations in deep deposits of soft clay is governed by the settlements within the clay deposit surrounding the piles. A long-duration thermal response test (TRT) has...
Mobilized Response of Piles Subjected to Downdrag
Abstract This paper presents a model that allows the evaluation of the mobilized response of piles subjected to downdrag and drag forces. The presented technique couples the soil and pile settlemen...
Negative skin friction on end-bearing piles
An elaborate centrifuge modelling scheme was developed to seamlessly incorporate multiple sequential stages into one model test to induce negative skin friction on an end-bearing instrumented modelExpand
Negative Skin Friction on Piles in Layered Soil Deposits
The authors present a simplified numerical procedure for the analysis of negative skin friction on piles in a layered soil deposit. Pile-soil interface behavior is modeled by nonlinear soil springs.Expand
Dragload and Downdrag Settlement of Single Piles due to Post-liquefaction Reconsolidation
A fundamental error with the traditional neutral plane solution is that the neutral plane solution assumes that the pile settlement and soil settlement are equal at the depth of the neutral plane.Expand
Comparison of Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code and AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications regarding pile design subject to negative skin friction
Negative skin friction acting on piles has long been included in the design of bridge foundations subject to ground settlement. However, currently there are inconsistencies in how negative skin fri...
Shaft Resistance of Piles in Normally Consolidating Marine Clay Subjected to Compressive and Uplift Load
This paper presents 24 test results on instrumented hollow tubular aluminum close ended floating piles in laboratory to examine the mechanisms of load transfer between the piles surface and normallyExpand
Behaviour of a sensitive clay during pile driving
A full scale investigation with six instrumented test piles has been carried out on the Saint-Alban test site in order to study the behaviour of friction piles in soft sensitive soils. The first partExpand
A field study is described which investigated the load transfer behavior of precast reinforced concrete piles driven through marine clay and founded in residual soil and weathered rock of sedimenatryExpand
Criteria for the design of friction piles subjected to negative skin friction and transient loads
In this paper, an analysis of the behavior of an individual friction pile subjected to negative skin friction and transient loads (seism or wind) for typical stratigraphic and piezometric conditionsExpand
