Compression tension and torsion tests have been carried out on model steel piles for the purpose of evaluating the major factors affecting the skin friction resistance of piles driven into or placed in cohesionless soils of various relative densities. A review of available data from tests carried out elsewhere has also been made. The test data obtained by the authors and by others have been compared with the skin friction resistance as calculated by a method first proposed by Dorr.
