STATISTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF BEARING CAPACITY OF SINGLE PILES

THE PAPER DESCRIBES THE STATISTICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BEARING CAPACITY OF SINGLE PILES BASED ON RESULTS OF A LARGE NUMBER OF IN-SITU VERTICAL LOADING TESTS. THIS STUDY WORK CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS; THE FIRST IS RELATED TO NORMALIZED LOAD-SETTLEMENT CURVES FOR EACH TYPE OF PILES AND THE SECOND REFERS TO THE RELIABILITY OF BEARING CAPACITY FORMULAS OF PILES. THE AUTHORS, FIRST, POINT OUT THAT THE TYPE OF NORMALIZED LOAD-SETTLEMENT CURVES ARE STATISTICALLY CLASSIFIED INTO FIVE TYPES DEPENDING ON DIFFERENT PILE INSTALLATION METHODS AND BEARING MODES SUCH AS END BEARING AND FRICTIONAL RESISTANCE. THEN, IT IS VERIFIED WITH THE CORRECTION COEFFICIENTS THAT THE PROPOSED FORMULAS SHOW A CONSIDERABLE IMPROVEMENT IN PREDICTION OF THE BEARING CAPACITY OF A PILE AS COMPARED WITH THOSE SPECIFIED IN THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR HIGHWAY BRIDGES (1990).
