Combination Drilled Shaft and Driven Pile Foundation for a High-Rise Building
A case history is presented which discusses the design and construction of a combination drilled shaft and driven pile foundation which supports a high-rise in San Francisco. Drilled piers,...

New Design Method for Drilled Shafts from Common Soil and Rock Tests
A method is presented by which the compressive capacity and load-settlement characteristics of large drilled shafts can be computed from commonly executed soil and rock tests. The method...

CUFAD: A Computer Program for Compression and Uplift Foundaton Analysis and Design
A research effort within the electric utility industry has focused on unified design methods for axially loaded foundations for transmission line structures. This research has been made...

Some Observations on Undrained Side Resistance of Drilled Shafts
A data base of 106 field load tests (65 in uplift and 41 in compression) is used to evaluate the undrained side resistance of drilled shaft foundations. The total stress or alpha (α) method...

A Geotechnical Analysis System with Applications for Drilled Shaft Foundations
The development and components of a geotechnical analysis system are described and illustrated for drilled shaft foundations. This finite element-based analysis system incorporates several...

The Design of the Outlet for the New Koepchenwerk Pumpstorage Plant
The Koepchenwerk Pumpstorage Plant (1930) is going to be replaced by a new plant with a 150 MW Pumpturbine in a shaft. This paper explains the reasons for this replacement and gives a...

Early Detection of Rotor Cracks—Monitoring & Methodology
This paper describes a diagnostic method for the early detection of shaft cracks on rotating machines. The method is based on interpretation of the lateral synchronous (1x) and twice per...

Generators with Shaft Mounted Turbine Runners
Water turbine runners mounted on an extended generator shaft are often specified to eliminate turbine bearings and the flexible shaft coupling. Two bearing single shaft turbine generator...

Major Hydraulic Turbine Operation and Maintenance Problems Experienced by the Corps of Engineers
The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers is the largest owner/operator of hydroelectric power generating facilities in the United States with 344 generating units, having an installed capacity...

Adaptive Model for Drilled Shafts in Expansive Clay

Uplift Capacity of Drilled Shafts and Driven Piles in Granular Materials

Leakage from Pressure Tunnels and Shafts
Several issues related to leakage from unlined pressure tunnels and shafts are reviewed and discussed. They include confinement, or cover requirements relative to hydraulic jacking of...

Design of the Tunnel System for the Terror Lake Hydroelectric Project
The Terror Lake Hydroelectric Project, Kodiak, Alaska, contains a 5-mile-long (8. 1 Km) power tunnel with supplementary stream diversions entering it by two shafts along its alignment....

Synopsis: Ozark-Webbers Falls Turbine Repairs
The Ozark and Webbers Falls powerhouses were designed and constructed under the supervision of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and are located on the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation...

Shear Mobilization on Laterally Loaded Shafts
From the results of a pressure cell instrumented rigid shaft embedded in stiff clay and subjected to horizontal static loading the side shear mobilization rate, and its contribution to...

Predictions of Pile Shaft Capacity With the PLS Cell
In situ measurements of stresses and pore pressures on a model pile shaft, the Piezo-Lateral Stress (PLS) cell, are utilized to reconstruct the conditions of load tests involving two large...

Dilatometer Tests for the Design of Grouted Piles in Rock
A case study of drilled and grouted piles in rock, which were analyzed using results of down-hole dilatometer tests is presented. The tests were performed from a jack-up platform in water...

Capacity Increase of Multi-Jet Pelton Turbines
The recent connection to the grid of large capacity thermal stations, to meet the increasing demand, has entailed an evolution in the type of services required from storage plants with...

Re-Use of Civil Structures Make Norway Hydro Possible
Utilization of abandoned civil facilities made the addition of 1,800 KW to an operating 3,200 KW hydro plant of the City of Norway, Michigan Light and Power feasible. Work consisted of...

Bentonitic Slurry in Constructing Drilled Piers
Bentonitic slurry is employed extensively in the construction of drilled shafts. While serious problems can occur, evidence is presented to show that the proper use of slurry will lead...
