A unified design of piles and pile groups is proposed wherein capacity, residual compression, negative skin friction, and settlement are related. First, the location of the neutral plane is determined. Then, the adequacy of the structural strength of the pile is checked and followed by an analysis of the settlement of the pile foundation, applying the concept of an equivalent footing placed at the neutral plane. Finally, the adequacy of the pile bearing capacity is verified. For structural… Expand

Design Of Piles And Pile Groups Considering Capacity
Current practice for pile design varies and building codes differ between countries as well as within countries, indeed, even between individual engineering disciplines. The differences do not becomeExpand
UNIFIED DESIGN OF PILED FOUNDATIONS WITH EMPHASIS ON SETTLEMENT ANALYSIS. IN: CURRENT PRACTICES AND FUTURE TRENDS IN DEEP FOUNDATIONS
Design of a piled foundation rarely includes a settlement analysis and is usually limited to determining that the factor of safety on pile capacity is equal to an at least value. This approach isExpand
Piles subjected to negative friction; a procedure for design
This paper emphasizes the fact that when piles are subjected to negative friction, their ultimate geotechnical capacity is not significantly influenced, and the main deleterious effects arise fromExpand
BEHAVIOR OF PILES DURING SOIL CONSOLIDATION
Piles driven into soft clay are often subjected to downdrag force. The downdrag force develops negative skin friction on the pile shaft. Negative skin friction is the most common problem in theExpand
Axial load transfer for piles in sand. I. Tests on an instrumented precast pile
A precast concrete pile was driven 11.0 m into a sand deposit and subjected to three compression and one tension static loading tests. By means of strain-gage instrumentation, the loads imposed inExpand
Drag Force on Single Piles in Clay Subjected to Surcharge Loading
Piles driven into clay are often subjected to indirect loading as a result of the surcharge applied on the surrounding area. During the drained period, both the piles and the soil undergo downwardExpand
Theory and modelling of negative skin friction on a pile in soil
It is well-accepted within the foundation engineering community that piles in settling soil can be subject to negative skin friction (NSF). Typical causes of soil settlement include surface loadsExpand
Consolidating Soil-Pile Interaction
Soft clay is consolidated upon any slight change in the effective vertical stress. Consolidation causes a downdrag movement to the shaft piles that penetrate this layer. The downdrag movement addsExpand
Design for Settlement of Pile Groups by the Unified Design Method: A Case History
A series of tall apartment buildings was planned to be built on reclaimed ground over a thick deltaic deposit near-shore deposit outside City of Pusan in South Korea. The soil profile consisted ofExpand
Analysis of Negative Skin-Friction on Single Piles by One-Dimensional Consolidation Model Test
The computer program pile negative skin friction (PileNSF) was developed by the authors to predict the bearing capacity of a pile embedded in a consolidating ground due to surcharge loading. TheExpand
