Tension Tests On Bored Piles In Sand

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The lengths of the bored piles varied from 2 m to 6 m and all were of a diameter of 140 mm. The piles were tested to failure in tension and the load-displacement relations were recorded. The investigation has shown pronounced differences between the load bearing capacities obtained by different design methods. The methods proposed by Fleming et al. and Reese & O’Neill seem to produce the best match with the test results.
