Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to describe the different stages and the final results of the geotechnical investigations and foundation design for a bridge in a seismic area, in the south of Italy. Particular attention is given to the procedure followed to study dynamic soil-pile interaction. Also described in summary fashion are a number of “borehole shear tests” carried out and their results.
