PERFORMANCE OF EARTH RETAINING STRUCTURES AND PILE FOUNDATIONS

A persistent problem in design is evaluation of the performance of a retaining structure on pile foundations. To develop more effective design methods and also to evaluate construction procedures, a symposium was held to gain additional exposure for measurement systems now being used and to define the abilities and limitations of each. The seven papers cover earth pressure measurements, end bearing of piles, downdrag on piles, enlarged-tip piles, lateral load tests, displacements in deep excavations and field performance.
