Abstract

"An experimental investigation was made of the way in which loads were transmitted to point bearing H-piles in sand under a retaining wall. Using a plastic model, the moments and axial loads were determined along the length of the pile by measuring the strains with electric strain gages. A comparison was made of the experimental results at the top of the pile and the analytical results at this point; the latter obtained from the common practice used in design. The comparison was very poor because the excessive horizontal load (that part of the horizontal load which could not be carried by the batter pile) caused uplift in the heel pile and more compression in the batter pile, instead of the bending it was thought to impart to all piles. The experimental results showed that the axial load reduced with depth, and that the moment exhibited a sinusoidal damping with depth"--Abstract, page ii.
