Abstract

The paper deals with the design method of axially loaded bored single piles based on statistical analysis of more than 350 field static load tests (MLT) of bored piles made in Czech Republic and partially in Germany during the past 30 years. The limit state of serviceability is characterized by the construction of load-settlement curve. The first draft of this method was based on the theory of elasticity and on quasi-elastic relations between soil and pile and it was modified by means of back analyses of pile static load test results. Recently, the construction of the load-settlement curve is based on the non-linear pile settlement theory by means of pressiometric modulus of soil and rheological parameter of soil structure. Ten types of soils and weak rocks, typical for the geotechnical conditions not only in Czech Republic were chosen.

Design of Axially Loaded Bored Single Piles in the Czech Republic

New York, New York

The paper deals with the design method of axially loaded bored single piles based on statistical analysis of more than 350 field static load tests (MLT) of bored piles made in Czech Republic and partially in Germany during the past 30 years. The limit state of serviceability is characterized by the construction of load-settlement curve. The first draft of this method was based on the theory of elasticity and on quasi-elastic relations between soil and pile and it was modified by means of back analyses of pile static load test results. Recently, the construction of the load-settlement curve is based on the non-linear pile settlement theory by means of pressiometric modulus of soil and rheological parameter of soil structure. Ten types of soils and weak rocks, typical for the geotechnical conditions not only in Czech Republic were chosen.
