THE DESIGN OF FRANKIPILES IN CLAYS

This paper reports the results of a study of the performance of Franki cast-in-situ piles in clays based on the results of load tests. It is normal for pile depths and capacity to be determined from dynamic measurements made during construction (pile set and basing resistance) but it is frequently necessary at the design or estimating stage to make predictions using static design methods based on shear strength parameters. It is known that most conventional methods of static analysis (eg, using the Australian piling code 1978) will lead to an unduly conservative estimate of pile capacity, and this paper aims at producing a more realistic design method based on correlation with known test results.
