DESIGN OF PILE GROUPS UNDER VERTICAL LOAD IN SAND

The paper presents an extensive review of the literature available on the behaviour of groups of piles in a foundation of sand. Methods of determining the ultimate load-carrying capacity and the settlement of pile groups are discussed. Also, the influence of the pile cap on the carrying capacity of the pile group is indicated. The merits and demerits of each method are discussed, clarifying the situations in which a particular method may be more suitable than others. (a) (TRRL)
