Abstract

Based on the analysis of the piled-raft foundations, as well as experimental investigations of the geotechnical engineers, it is stated that the load of a piled-raft foundation is transferred both to a raft and a pile. When a piled-raft foundation design, the account of this factor allows the significant decrease of the foundation cost. To work out the method of a piled-raft foundation design, the experimental and numerical investigations have been carried out.The paper gives some results of the experimental and numerical investigations of piled-raft foundations. A method of the evaluation of a load part transferred to a raft and the piles is suggested. The conditions of the load transfer to a raft when a foundation loading are determined.

Consideration of Raft and Soil Interaction in Piled-Rafts Design

New York, New York

Based on the analysis of the piled-raft foundations, as well as experimental investigations of the geotechnical engineers, it is stated that the load of a piled-raft foundation is transferred both to a raft and a pile. When a piled-raft foundation design, the account of this factor allows the significant decrease of the foundation cost. To work out the method of a piled-raft foundation design, the experimental and numerical investigations have been carried out.The paper gives some results of the experimental and numerical investigations of piled-raft foundations. A method of the evaluation of a load part transferred to a raft and the piles is suggested. The conditions of the load transfer to a raft when a foundation loading are determined.
