Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

is there a distance limitation for executing a borehole 1 meter adjacent to a Bored pile?? and what is the reference for such?

RE: Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

I'd say it all depends on soil type, water table elevation, method of advancing hole (cased first, hollow stem auger, solid stem auger, water added, etc., support zone for the pile (side friction, end bearing ?). Reference : my experience. Reason why might help me also.

RE: Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

Silty Sand, dense to medium dense, No water table present, 6 ms temporary casing during solid stem Auger boring, Bentonite added during boring, bored piles 1000 mm to 1200 mm in Dia., Length varies from 25 ms to 43 ms from Cut-off level, side friction & End Bearing.

RE: Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

I'd not use hollow stem augers or uncased solid stem augers. I'd use driven casing, washed out, take sample, etc. and repeat as needed. Much less chance of causing problems. At 2 meters maybe use anything you want. It likely depends on how stable improvement the initial job was on material near the pile.

RE: Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

Without guidance, I'd stay 3 to 4 pile diameters away and fill the borehole afterwards with CLSM or something ot that ilk.


RE: Executing a borehole adjacent to Bored pile

If the bored pile is concreted, 1 m away is a fair distance to do a borehole. A temporary casing is a must in a silty SAND layer to avoid caving in. Casing installation should be pushed and no allowance for vibration that creating a loose sand and consume a lot of concrete.

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
