The October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake provided an ideal time and situation to perform for the first time, at no installation cost, a full scale lateral load test on a group of driven piles in typical bridge footings at the Cypress Street Viaduct. Since these foundations were no longer going to be used, we were able to load them laterally to failure and record load versus deflection. Testing was performed at two different locations. Location #1 consisted of 60 feet ± long piles in a clayey… CONTINUE READING
