Abstract

Details and results of uplift load tests on 25 piles at 15 sites are presented. The allowable uplift load on each pile determined from the BOCA code criterion is compared with an allowable capacity based on small movements at design load. In the majority of cases, the BOCA capacities are significantly lower.

Uplift Load Tests on Driven Piles

St. Louis, Missouri

Details and results of uplift load tests on 25 piles at 15 sites are presented. The allowable uplift load on each pile determined from the BOCA code criterion is compared with an allowable capacity based on small movements at design load. In the majority of cases, the BOCA capacities are significantly lower.
