FOUNDATION ENGINEERING

CLASS EXAMPLE

A bored, cast-in-situ test-pile, 1.0m diameter and 15m long, has been founded in a deep layer

of saturated, stiff clay. A load cell was installed at the pile tip in order to record endresistance. Laboratory tests showed that the undrained shear strength of the clay increased

from 105kN/m2 at ground-level to 120kN/m2 at 15m. Below 15m the undrained shear

strength remained relatively constant at 120kN/m 2. The saturated unit weight of the clay was

determined as 19.5kN/m3 and the weight of the pile was 270kN. A load-test to failure was

preformed on the pile with the following test data:

(a) Plot shaft- and end- resistance against pile settlement and comment on the

relationship between these two components.

(b) Calculate the maximum adhesion resistance per unit area (in kN/m2) that can be

developed on the pile shaft and hence determine the maximum adhesion factor, ,

for the pile ( = 0.32)

(c) Calculate the undrained shear strength of the clay from the maximum baseresistance and compare this value with that obtained from laboratory tests,

explaining any difference between the two (cu,base = 100kN/m2).
