Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

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”.
