Abstract

The Southern California Edison Company (SCE) has utilized cone penetrometer test (CPT) data for design of concrete drilled shafts and driven piles at various facilities over the past seven years with substantial cost savings in field exploration and foundation design. This paper incorporates a performance evaluation of drilled shafts and driven piles to predict the uplift load versus deflection curves based on the embedded length to diameter ratio of each foundation. A revised design methodology is presented to correlate the side friction values from CPT data with field uplift load test results in granular and cohesive soils.
