During 1966, the writers had the opportunity to conduct tests relating skin friction to pile movement for model steel pipe piles embedded in poorly graded Arkansas River sand of medium density. The apparatus used to conduct the tests and correlations with the behavior of full-scale piles loaded in compression were reported by the writers. The full-scale steel pipe pile data were obtained from a report by Fruco and Associates. This note describes correlations achieved for piles subjected to uplift loads by comparing computed load versus pile movement curves with the actual behavior of the field piles.
