Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

The basics of the derivation of axial pile capacity based on empirical values and selected results are presented. Empirical values for both base and shaft resistances based on soil strength, e.g. the resistance of cone penetration tests or the undrained shear strength, are derivated for a range of commonly used pile systems. Up to 1000 pile load tests on displacement piles, such as precast concrete, cast in place, steel, and screwed cast in place piles, etc. and micro piles are evaluated. The result of this study has been already integrated in the national German recommendations for piles “EA-Pfähle”.
