Axial capacity of driven piles

Axial capacity of driven piles

Axial capacity of driven piles

(OP)
I am looking for a good reference on calculating axial load capacities of driven piles. I relocated to an area where it pretty common and wanted to get a feel for it. I am not designing anything.

RE: Axial capacity of driven piles

Checkout the FHWA manuals on design and construction of driven piles

RE: Axial capacity of driven piles

Check PDCA - Design and Construction of Driven Pile Foundations

RE: Axial capacity of driven piles

Chellis is an old reference (sorry oldestguy) - and a dang good one - our company had a copy and on a move it got lost (sadly not into my library) - it has very practical cases on a variety of subjects such as driving H-piles in sand.

That said, I have always found that M.J. Tomlinson's book on Pile Design and Construction is the best for me. There are other piling books - Poulos and Davis (1980) among others such as Fleming. You can also look up papers by Bengt Fellenius' - he also has a soft copy book, downloadable, at https://www.unisoftgs.com/uploaded/file/RedBook.pd... .

Thanks all.

RE: Axial capacity of driven piles

There are a number of CPT-based methods which have been shown to be very reliable. See, for example, the Imperial College Pile (ICP) design method (this link is just the first pages of the book - it goes into more detail later on, as you'd expect, but gives a flavour of the method).
