Could anyone provide technical references with guidelines to evaluate effectiveness of a line of drilled shafts to stabilize slopes in clayey soils? In particular: Is there a way to establish the maximum, effective, pile spacing as a function of the soil parameters of wet clayey soils, such as the plasticity index? Or, is there a way to evaluate the arching capacity of clayey soils in terms of pile spacing and plasticity parameters?
