ESTIMATION OF PILE GROUP SETTLEMENTS

In this paper attention is concentrated on solutions from elasticity theory and their application to practical problems. The basis of the analysis is described briefly and a number of parametric solutions are presented for the settlement ratio of pile groups. The determination of the soil parameters required to apply these solutions to practice is discussed and brief reference is made to a number of cases in which observed and theoretical pile group settlement behaviour have been compared. An illustrative example is given to demonstrate the use of the parametric solutions and the construction of design charts from the solutions are described with reference to a simple problem. /TRRL/
