STABILITY OF BRIDGE ABUTMENTS FOUNDED ON PILES SUNK IN A COMPRESSIBLE LAYER

STABILITE DES CULEES DE PONTS ETABLIES SUR DES PLEUX TRAVERSANT UNE COUCHE MOLLE

Study was made of the behavior of 15 bridges in which horizontal movements of the abutments had been observed. The latter rested on piles which were sunk through a compressible layer before or during the construction of the embankments. Taking into account the pile characteristics, the compressibility and geometry of the compressible layer, the authors describe the conditions in which such movements can occur.
