Abstract

Three series of ten piles each have been installed. The lengths of the piles varied from 2 m to 6 m and the diameters were 14 cm, 25 cm and 60 cm. The piles were constructed above the ground water table using continuous flight augers and the concrete was placed by gravity free fall. All piles were tested to failure in axial uplift and the load-displacement relations were recorded and the results from the tests have been compared with theoretical values based on current design practice and the methods proposed by Fleming et al. and Reese & O'Neill seem to produce the best match with the test results.
