Abstract

Results of lateral load tests on four drilled shafts installed in stiff cohesive soil are presented. Predictions of the load/displacement behavior were made using p-y curves generated from the results of Prebored Pressuremeter and Dilatometer Tests. A new method to develop p-y curves from the DMT is presented and discussed.

Behavior of Laterally Loaded Drilled Shafts in Stiff Soil

St. Louis, Missouri

Results of lateral load tests on four drilled shafts installed in stiff cohesive soil are presented. Predictions of the load/displacement behavior were made using p-y curves generated from the results of Prebored Pressuremeter and Dilatometer Tests. A new method to develop p-y curves from the DMT is presented and discussed.
