CRITERIA FOR THE DESIGN OF AXIALLY LOADED DRILLED SHAFTS

BETWEEN 1965 AND 1971 SEVERAL INSTRUMENTED DRILLED SHAFTS WERE INSTALLED AND LOAD TESTED BY THE CENTER FOR HIGHWAY RESEARCH AT VARIOUS SITES IN TEXAS. THE RESULTS OF THE TESTS WERE ANALYZED AND, TOGETHER WITH A THOROUGH REVIEW OF THE WORK OF OTHER INVESTIGATORS, WERE USED IN ESTABLISHING REALISTIC CRITERIA FOR DESIGN VALUE OF SIDE RESISTANCE AND BASE CAPACITY. A STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE INCORPORATING THESE CRITERIA WAS DEVELOPED FOR USE IN DESIGNING SHAFTS IN PREDOMINANTLY CLAY SOILS. THIS PROCEDURE INCLUDES THE EFFECTS OF CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE AND SHAFT GOEMETRY AND IS INTENDED FOR USE IN THE DESIGN OFFICE.
