Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The basics of the derivation of axial pile capacity based on empirical values and selected results are presented, which are already integrated in the national German recommendations for piles „EA-Pfähle“. The study provides to a large extent a secured range of empirical values for the base resistance and the skin friction for different pile systems as a function of the soil strength. Based on comparative statistical analysis of pile load tests of different pile systems, it becomes possible to derive a consistent analysis of bearing behaviour of pile systems, which provides a safe and an economical pile bearing capacity depending on the expense of preliminary soil investigations.
