SOME LOADING TESTS ON LONG PIPE PILES

TO ESTIMATE THE BEARING CAPACITY OF 60 IN. DIA. STEEL PIPE TO BE DRIVEN AT A SITE, TWO STEEL PIPE PILES OF 24 IN. DIA. WERE DRIVEN, ONE INTO GRANULAR AND THE OTHER INTO COHESIVE SOIL, AND TEST LOADED IN SUCH A MANNER AS TO MEASURE SEPARATELY THE SKIN FRICTION AND END-GEARING COMPONENTS OF THE PILE CAPACITY. THE PAPER PRESENTS THE PERTINENT GEOTECHNICAL PROPERTIES OF THE SUBSOIL AT EACH TEST PILE AND THE VALUES OF SKIN FRICTION AND END-BEARING SO DETERMINED. THE PILE DRIVEN INTO THE COHESIVE SOIL WAS TEST LOADED AT VARIOUS TIMES AFTER DRIVING TO DETERMINE ANY CHANGE IN PILE CAPACITY WITH TIME. A FEATURE OF THE SITE WAS THE PRESENCE OF ARTESIAN WATER PRESSURES IN THE SOIL. THE COMPUTED AND MEASURED VALUES OF PILE CAPACITY ARE COMPARED. /RRL(A)/
