SPLICING OF PRECAST-PRESTRESSED CONCRETE PILES
A broad range of splices for precast-prestressed concrete piles were evaluated, based largely upon information furnished by fabricators, designers, and proponents of the various splices. Basic considerations included size range, field time for splicing, approximate cost, availability, and construction usage. Data on the strength of the splices was obtained from tests during the study, from experience and tests conducted by others, and from theoretical and analytical studies. The cement-dowel splice was tested under hard and soft driving conditions. Study results indicate that the Herkules splice, the Anderson sleeve splice, and the cement-dowel splice would be most effective in fulfilling the needs of practical applications for highway and bridge construction in Louisiana.
