Seismic performance of pile-to-pile cap connections: An investigation of design issues

  title={Seismic performance of pile-to-pile cap connections: An investigation of design issues},
  author={M. Teguh},
Damage in recent earthquakes has resulted in the design of pile foundation systems becoming more conservative, particularly pile-to-pile cap connections. However, the application of current international design practice results in pile cap joint details having congested steel reinforcement in the pile cap and this is extremely difficult to construct in accordance with the designers recommendations. The formation of plastic hinges in the piles remains a serious risk. A review of critical design… CONTINUE READING
