Bearing Capacity

Geotechnical engineers frequently rely on semi-empirical methods like Décourt-Quaresma and Meyehof’s to estimate the bearing capacity of piles. This paper proposes alternatives to these methods, presenting an approach using machine learning models for predicting the bearing capacity of precast concrete piles. It uses data samples in...

In the design of piles drilled in rock, the following questions arise: (i) at what point of the soil/weathered rock/sound rock profile should the pile socket be designed; (ii) is the contribution of residual soil to be disregarded; (iii)how much consideration should be given to the pile boring method (rotary or hammering). Furthermore, usual design meth...

This paper presents a new method for predicting the axial capacity of piles from dynamic penetration tests which is based on the concepts of soil dynamics and principles of energy conservation. The energy delivered to the hammerrod-sampler system and transferred to the soil is computed from the numbers of blow counts Nspt and is a...

A new kind of reinforced Deep Cement Mixing (DCM) pile, namely: Stiffened Deep Cement Mixing (SDCM) pile is introduced to mitigate the problems due to the low flexural resistance, lack of quality control in the field and unexpected failure of DCM pile. The SDCM pile consists of DCM pile reinforced with precast concrete core pile. Previously, the full sc...
