EVALUATING THE BEARING CAPACITY OF DRIVEN PILES IN SANDY SOILS

At the construction sites, the piles penetrated loose fine and medium-fine sand interstratified with localized sandy and clayey soils of shallow depth ranging from slightly plastic to fluid consistency, and were buried into more dense fine or medium-grained sands at 0.2-1 m. The density of the structure of the latter was established by dynamic probing and was characterized primarily as average, and at points, as dense. The groundwater horizon lies 1-4 m below the surface of the ground. 22 prismatic 30 X 30 and 35 X 35-cm piles, which were embedded to depths of from 5.8 to 12.9 m below the graded surface were tested.
