Load Transfer Behavior of Bored Piles

Borehole Shear Test and Slope Stability
Three Iowa landslides analyzed on the basis of Borehole Shear Test (BST) data are reported. The soils included CL and ML loess and glacial till, and CH clay shale. Back-calculations from...

Roller Compacted Concrete and Tunnel Boring Machines—Two Tools for Designers and Planners
Two tools that have come into use fairly recently are roller compacted concrete and tunnel boring machines. These new tools can significantly affect the ability to make new projects cost...

Evaluation of Liquefaction Potential of Anderson Ranch Dam
This paper contains a description of a liquefaction evaluation of the alluvial foundation soils at Anderson Ranch Dam, which was performed as part of the USBR's program of...

Pore Pressure Effects in Borehole Shear Testing
The effects of excess pore pressures on shear strength results obtained using the Borehole Shear Test (BST) were investigated. Pore pressures were measured during the consolidation, shear,...

Site Characterization Using the Cone Penetrometer Test
The Cone Penetrometer Test (CPT) when used in conjunction with a limited soil boring program can provide a more detailed and economical site characterization. This paper addresses how...

Permeability, and the Field Pumping Test
Methods of estimating in situ permeability of soils are discussed including laboratory tests, borehole tests and field pumping tests, with emphasis on the latter. Techniques for designing...

Waterfront Electric Cone Penetration Testing
Offshore deployment methods developed for use by the oil industry were combined with less expensive nearshore drill barge technology. This resulted in the successful completion of cone...

Installation of Thermistor Strings in Test Borings: A Comparison of Methods and Results
Several test borings were instrumented with two thermistor strings, one inside and one outside an air-filled PVC casing to compare readings of both thermistor strings and the stability...

N-Values Used to Predict Settlements of Piles in Egypt
A method is proposed for using the standard penetration N-values to predict the load-settlement curves for different piles used in Egyptian soils. The method is based on H. G. Poulos-E....

Drilled Piers and Caissons II
Drilled piers or caissons, also called drilled shafts or bored piles, have long been a very cost effective foundation solution for many soil profile and load situations. A distinct advantage...

Tunneling Operations and Equipment
The papers included in the Proceedings describe four diverse tunneling prjects of varying diameters, design criteria, ground conditions and construction techniques undertaken at locations...

Mining Geothermal Energy From Hot Dry Rock
Geothermal energy is commonly considered to be available only in areas characterized by hot springs and geysers. However, the rock of the earth is hot at accessible depths everywhere,...

Evaluation of P-Y Relationships in Cohesive Soils
The practice of analyzing laterally loaded driven and bored piles often requires modeling of soil response in terms of uncoupled, non-linear unit load transfer functions. These functions,...

An Application of Acoustic Core Analysis
This technique has shown itself to be extremely successful at Roberts Bank, in a highly variable bottom material, where shallow depths were not a significant problem, and some borehole...

Landform-Based Characterization of Soil Properties
A probabilistic characterization of site soil properties can be achieved with sparse site-specific data by augmenting them with data available from other sites in the region having the...
