Abstract

In this lecture, a new principle for design of building foundations on friction piles in soft, cohesive soils is presented. Four case records on buildings designed according to the new principle are analysed in respect of total and differential settlement. In two cases, a comparison has been made with buildings on conventional friction piles. The savings in foundation cost of the buildings designed with creep piles is evaluated in relation to buildings designed with conventional friction piles. The lecture is a synthesis of research and development carried out together with Leif Jendeby, M.Sc., Chalmers University of Technology and Rolf Källström, M.Sc., AB Jacobson & Widmark, Gothenburg.

Foundations on Friction Creep Piles in Soft Clays

In this lecture, a new principle for design of building foundations on friction piles in soft, cohesive soils is presented. Four case records on buildings designed according to the new principle are analysed in respect of total and differential settlement. In two cases, a comparison has been made with buildings on conventional friction piles. The savings in foundation cost of the buildings designed with creep piles is evaluated in relation to buildings designed with conventional friction piles. The lecture is a synthesis of research and development carried out together with Leif Jendeby, M.Sc., Chalmers University of Technology and Rolf Källström, M.Sc., AB Jacobson & Widmark, Gothenburg.
