ISSLEDOVANIYA PO VYYAVLENIYU REZERVA NESUSHCHEJ SPOSOBNOSTI SVAJNYKH KUSTOV

A new patented method is described for the stage construction of foundations on piles and rafts. The raft, fitted with cavities to receive the heads of the piles, is first loaded as a slab then subsequent loading is imposed on the piles. Experiments carried out demonstrate that such a raft foundation takes up 75% of the load, instead of 50% which it would take up if it was constructed in a traditional fashion. Various possibilities for joining the heads of the piles to the slab are given, and a new method of design of such foundations is presented. (TRRL)
