PILE FOUNDATIONS - SINGLE PILES

INITIALLY THE BEHAVIOUR OF PILES IN COMPRESSIBLE AND INCOMPRESSIBLE SOIL AND THE TWO MODES OF FAILURE ARE DEALT WITH. THE PAPERS REVIEWED IN THIS GENERAL REPORT DEAL WITH THE CALCULATION OF POINT RESISTANCE BASED ON THE THEORY OF ELASTICITY, MODEL TESTS AND THEIR THEORETICAL EVALUATION WITH THE AID OF THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD, AND WITH PROBLEMS OF MODELLING SIMILARITY. THE SECOND PART CONTAINS DETAILS OF LOADING TESTS AND THEIR RESULTS AS WELL AS THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO SOUNDING METHODS AND THEIR EVALUATION. THE PAPERS DEAL WITH SUCH TOPICS AS LOADING TESTS ON VARIOUS TYPES OF PILES IN DIFFERENT SOIL STRATA, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BEARING CAPACITY AND STANDARD PENETRATION TESTS, THE DETERMINATION OF EARTH PRESSURE FACTORS AND POINT RESISTANCE, VERIFICATION OF SOIL PARAMETERS OBTAINED USING PRESSIOMETERS BY MEANS OF TEST PILES, THE INFLUENCE OF POREWATER PRESSURES AND TIME DEPENDENT SETTLEMENT BEHAVIOUR, THE RELEVANCE OF SOIL PARAMETERS FOR CALCULATIONS, MEASUREMENTS AND INSTRUMENTATION ON A LARGE DIAMETER BORED PILE, AND AN EXTRAPOLATION METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE BEARING CAPACITY FROM A DIMENSIONLESS LOAD-SETTLEMENT GRAPH. THE THIRD PART DEALS WITH ASPECTS OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SOUNDING METHODS AND PILE BEHAVIOUR AND THEIR USE FOR PREDICTING SOIL BEARING CAPACITY AND PILE LOADS. THERE ARE REPORTS ON A SELF-DRILLING FRICTION PROBE, AN INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING POREWATER PRESSURE DURING DRIVING, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CONE PENETROMETER AND STANDARD PENETRATION TESTS, AND TWO NEW TYPES OF PILE - A GROUTED STEEL PILE AND A VIBRATED IN-SITU CONCRETE PILE. THE COVERING ABSTRACT FOR THE CONFERENCE IS IRRD NO 306088.
