CLASS EXAMPLES

A bored pile has been designed to carry an axial design load due to permanent and variable

actions of 2.60MN. It is to be installed in a deep layer of uniform, saturated clay with a

characteristic undrained shear strength, cu,k , of 65kN/m2. An adhesion factor of 0.4 can be

assumed for the clay. Cut-off level is 1m below ground surface.

(a)

The boring equipment available limits the maximum pile shaft diameter to 1.25m and

the depth to 20m. Determine whether a straight-shaft could be formed with this

equipment which would be capable of supporting the required load. Base and shaft

partial factors should be taken from Table (a), set R4 with explicit verification of

serviceability limit state (SLS) and using a model factor of 1.2; partial factor on soil

properties should be taken from Table (b), set M1.

(b)

An under-reaming cutter is available which can form a bell with the top of the bell

being 2.0m above the pile tip. Calculate what overall depth of pile is required if a 3m

diameter belled-base is formed and the pile shaft diameter (D) is 1.25m. Note: neglect

2D above the bell as not contributing to shaft resistance. Use the same partial factors

as in (a).

You can assume that the unit weight of concrete = unit weight of clay.
