SKIN FRICTION ON PILES

This is a discussion of 2 previously published parpers: Effective stress methods for calculating Skin Friction on Driven Piles in Soft Clay, and A Study of Skin Friction Piles in Stiff Clay. Comments are made on the use of the Mohr-Coulomb theory of failure to study the stress conditions at failure in the soil at a pile interface. Major difficulties in applying classical concepts to the soil around a pile are noted. The authors' reply to the discussion is also included.
