Steel H-Piles

Steel H-Piles

Steel H-Piles

For steel H-Piles supporting a concrete floor I am looking for the following information:

1. What is the requred embedment for the steel H-Pile?  For other types of piles it is usually set at a minimum of 3" but I have seen some requirements for 6" with steel H-Piles that don't have bearing plates.  Is there a document that covers these requirements for steel H-Piles.

2. What is the effective bearing area for the steel H-pile in the concrete floor; where the steel H-pile does not have a bearing plate welded to its end.  As a related question what are the equivalent square dimensions for use in calculating punching and one-way shear in the concrete floor.

Any help would be appreciated.
