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