Press-in piling: Field testing of cell foundations

Press-in piling: Field testing of cell foundations
Press-in piling: Field testing of cell foundations

The load carrying capacity of pressed-in piled foundations was investigated to determine whether installation force provides a useful indicator of long-term behavior. The relationship between installation force of a single pile and the installation force for poles within a cell was also studied. It was found that the measurement of jacking resistance during installation was a useful indicator of the long-term capacity of pressed-in piles in sand. The results also show that the bearing capacity of a complete cell foundation can be estimated from the installation load of a single pile.

Abstract

The load carrying capacity of pressed-in piled foundations was investigated to determine whether installation force provides a useful indicator of long-term behavior. The relationship between installation force of a single pile and the installation force for poles within a cell was also studied. It was found that the measurement of jacking resistance during installation was a useful indicator of the long-term capacity of pressed-in piles in sand. The results also show that the bearing capacity of a complete cell foundation can be estimated from the installation load of a single pile.
