IMPROVING OF THE BEARING CAPACITY OF BRIDGE SUPPORTS ON LARGE DIAMETER PILES

The solution of improvement of road bridge supports rested on large diameter bored piles is presented. The improvement was due to insufficient bearing capacity of piles obtained from the load tests. In the solution, the interaction between cap, specially compacted soil block and piles was taken into consideration. The paper describes the foundation conditions, proposed solution enabling safe transmission of loads on a subsoil, and subsequent steps. Possible failure factors in pile bearing capacity are also discussed.
