Calibration of Resistance Factors for Driven Piles using Static and Dynamic Tests
The field of geotechnical engineering has evolved from Allowable Stress Design (ASD) to Load Factor and Resistance Design (LRFD) which has led to a need to quantify the measures of uncertainty andExpand
Assessment of Long Reinforced Concrete Piles Response under Axial Load Test using Distributed Fibre Optic Strain Sensor
Axial load test on pile is the most common validation approach to determine the response of pile to the applied load and verify the design assumptions. Many failure criteria for axial pile load testExpand
Reliability-Based Design and Acceptance Protocol for Driven Piles
The current use of the Arkansas Standard Specifications for Highway Construction Manuals (2003, 2014) for driven pile foundations faces various limitations which result in designs of questionableExpand
Limitations and risk related to static capacity testing of piles – “unfortunate case” studies
Static load testing of foundation piles is still considered the main capacity check technology for almost any kind of piling works (bored, displacement, driven). The rates of load, time increments orExpand
Determination bearing capacity of driven piles in sandy soils usingArtificial Neural Networks ( ANNs ) 1
Due to some effective factors such as inhomogeneity of soil environment surrounded one pile, implementation of pile, pile material and its shape, correct estimation of pile load carrying capacity isExpand
Probabilistic Assessment of Model Uncertainty for Prediction of Pile Foundation Bearing Capacity; Static Analysis, SPT and CPT-Based Methods
A database, including 60 driven pile load test results and CPT records in the vicinity of them, was compiled to investigate the model uncertainties embedded in various predictive approaches and among conventional available predictive methods, CPT-based methods perform better than others and result in cost-effective and optimized trends.

Estimating the Driven Pile Capacities for COF Project in West Kazakhstan
This paper presents estimations of bearing capacities of precast concrete joint piles at two construction sites in the regions of Port Prorva located in Western Kazakhstan. The capacities of theExpand
Failure analysis of CPT-based direct methods for axial capacity of driven piles in sand
ABSTRACT Due to variety of current pile bearing capacity methods based on cone penetration test (CPT) measurements, there is always a need for evaluating performance of existing methods to makeExpand
Evaluation of Determination Methods for Ultimate Axial Capacity of Micropiles in Ontario soils
This paper evaluates different methods to determine the failure load of micropiles in Ontario soils. Micropiles are smalldiameter, grouted piles installed with a high amount of steel reinforcement.Expand
