2 Methods Pile driving formulae Static load test Dynamic or Statnamic load test Static formulae

3 Pile driving formulae e.g. Hiley formula (Energy balance) Q = .W.h. F (set + tc / 2) R u = working load, W=weight of the hammer, h= height of the hammer drop (stroke), F=factor of safety tc= elastic (temporary) compression  = efficiency F  s tc RuRu

4 Static Load Test Plunging failure Load to specified contract requirement What is the failure load? Davisson’s Method Butler and Hoy Chin’s Method Brinch Hanson etc. What is the distribution of resistance? Approximate methods Instrumentation Load Deflection

5 Dynamic and Statnamic Testing Methods Rapid alternatives to static testing Cheaper Separate dynamic resistance Correlation

6 Axial Capacity W P u QsQs Q b P u = Q b + Q s - W

7 Base Resistance Q b = A b [c b N c + P’ ob (N q -1)  BN  + P ob ] minus weight of pile, W p but W p  A b.P ob and as L >>B, 0.5  BN  << W p Q b = A b [c b N c + P’ ob N q ] and for  > 0, N q - 1  N q QbQb

8 Shaft Resistance Due to cohesion or friction Cohesive component : Q sc = A s. . c s Frictional component : Q sf = A s.K P’ os tan  P’ os K.P’ os Q s = Q sc + Q sf = A s [ .c s + K P’ os tan  ] AsAs

9 Total Pile Resistance Q u = Q b + Q s Q u = A b [c b N c +P’ ob N q ] + A s [ .c s +K P’ o tan  ] How do we compute Q u when shaft resistance along the pile is varying?

14 N c Parameter NcNc Compare Skempton’s N c for shallow foundations N c = 5(1+0.2B/L)(1+0.2D/ B)

15 Adhesion Factor,  Aust. Piling Code, AS159 (1978)

16 Bored Piles in Clay Skempton’s recommendations for side resistance –  =0.45 for c u <215 kPa –  c u =100 kPafor c u >215 kPa –N c is limited to 9. –A reduction factor is applied to account for likely fissuring (I.e., Q b = A b  c b N c )

17 Soil disturbance sampling attempts to establish in-situ strength values soil is failed/remoulded by driving or drilling pile installation causes substantial disturbance –bored piles : potential loosening –driven piles : probable densification

18 Scale effects Laboratory samples or in-situ tests involve small volumes of soil Failure of soil around piles involves much larger soil volumes If soil is fissured, the sample may not be representative

19 Q u = A b [c b N c +P’ ob N q ] + A s [ .c s +K P’ os tan  ] Piles in Sand Q u = A b [c b N c +P’ ob N q ] + A s [ .c s +K P’ os tan  ] Q u = A b P’ ob N q ] + A s K P’ os tan  ]

20 Overburden Stress P’ ob Q u = A b P’ ob N q ] + A s K P’ os tan  ] Meyerhof Method : P’ ob =  ’z Vesic Method : critical depth, z c for z < z c : P’ ob =  ’z for z > z c : P’ ob =  ’z c z c /d is a function of  after installation - see graph p. 24

21 Critical Depth (z c )

22 Bearing Factor, N q N q is a function of : friction angle,  N q is a function of : Q u = A b P’ ob N q ] + A s K P’ os tan  ] What affects  ? In-situ density Particle properties Installation procedure N q determined from graphs appropriate to each particular method Total end bearing may also be limited: Meyerhof : Q b < A b 50N q tan  Beware if  is pre- or post-installation: Layered soils : N q may be reduced if penetration insufficient. e.g. Meyerhof (p 21)

23 N q factor (Berezantzev’s Method) If D/B <4 reduce proportionately to Terzaghi and Peck values

24 Overburden Stress P’ os Q u = A b P’ ob N q ] + A s K P’ os tan  ] Meyerhof Method : P’ os =  ’z mid Vesic Method : critical depth, z c for z mid < z c : P’ ob =  ’z for z mid > z c : P’ ob =  ’z c z c /d is a function of  after installation - see graph p. 24

25 Lateral stress parameter, K A function of K o –normally consolidated or overconsolidated - see Kulhawy properties manual –see recommendations by Das, Kulhawy (p26) A function of installation –driven piles (full, partial displacement) –bored piles –augercast piles –screwed piles

27 K.tan  The K and tan  values are often combined into a single function see p 28 for Vesic values from Poulos and Davis

28 Pile-soil friction angle,  A function of  See values by Broms and Kulhawy (p26) A function of pile material –steel, concrete, timber A function of pile roughness –precast concrete –Cast-in-place concrete

29 Pile-soil friction angle
