Abstract: Existing interpretation methods for axial compression load tests are reviewed critically, and a qualitative and quantitative comparison is made for selected methods. A simplified method, which fulfills most of the basic requirements for an acceptable interpretation method, is proposed for interpreting static axial compression load test results on straight-sided drilled shafts in soil. A quantitative comparison of the proposed method with selected existing methods is given.
