METHODS OF CALCULATING THE ULTIMATE BEARING CAPACITY OF PILES: A SUMMARY

METHODS FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE BEARING CAPACITY OF PILES FROM STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF THE SOIL OR FROM DYNAMIC AND STATIC PENETRATION TEST ARE PRESENTED. IT CAN BE STATED THAT THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A RELIABLE GENERAL METHOD TO DETERMINE SATISFACTORILY THE BEARING CAPACITY OF PILES UNDER ALL CONDITIONS. WITH THE METHODS INCLUDED HEREIN THE PILE BEARING CAPACITY CAN BE DETERMINED FOR SOME IDEAL CONDITIONS. IN MOST CASES CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY EXISTS ABOUT THE ACTUAL BEARING CAPACITY OF A PILE WHEN LOAD TESTS HAVE NOT BEEN CARRIED OUT. /AUTHOR/
