BEARING CAPACITY OF PILES IN SUBSIDENT LOESS SOILS

TEST RESULTS ON PILES UNDER STATIC LOAD IN LOESS SOIL WITH UP TO 70 M SUBSIDENT LAYER THICKNESS ARE PRESENTED, AND SOME RECOMMENDATIONS ARE GIVEN FOR DETERMINING THEIR CAPACITY. IT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED THAT PILES, ESPECIALLY WHEN DRIVEN ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE SUBSIDENT LAYER, HAVE AN ADEQUATE BEARING CAPACITY AND ARE SUITABLE FOR LARGE-SCALE CONSTRUCTION WORK. MOST ECONOMICAL ARE PIPE PILES WITH A SOIL CORE, WHOSE SPECIFIC BEARING CAPACITY EXCEEDS THAT OF SOLID PILES. /AUTHOR/
