Four strain-gage instrumented bored piles were constructed in a sedimentary, dense to very dense, fine to medium sand in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Two of the test piles were the normally used bored pile constructed with bentonite slurry and two piles were Bauer Full Displacement Pile (FDP). One of each pair was equipped with the Expander Body, an inflatable steel cylinder that on pressure-grouting provides an enlarged pile toe. Head-down static loading test were performed on three of the piles and a… Expand
Pitfalls and Fallacies in Foundation Design
Design of the load to be placed on footings and piled foundations conventionally includes calculated bearing capacity—a peak, or ultimate, resistance—usually defined as a plastic, or semi-plastic,Expand
Estimation of Load-Settlement Curves of Embedded Piles Combining Results of End of Initial Driving and Restrike Dynamic Pile Tests
As the skin friction of an embedded pile is produced by the cement paste injected into the borehole, the skin friction cannot be evaluated by the end of initial driving test, which is conductedExpand
Pile load transfer from static load test inversion
This paper presents an inversion scheme to estimate the distribution of load in a deep foundation from the load–movement curve measured at the head. The method may be useful in situations whereExpand
PILING PRACTICE IN THE SEDIMENTARY GRANULAR SOILS OF SANTA CRUZ, BOLIVIA
The city of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, is historically dominated by houses and three to five storey buildings. The geology in and around the city is such that even very light buildings need to be supportedExpand
