Testing and Predicting the Movement of a Drilled Shaft in New Mexico
The New Mexico State Highway and Transportation Department (NMSH&TD) have been using drilled shafts for supporting bridges in the State of New Mexico. Several drilled shafts were...

Nonlinear Undrained Lateral Response of Rigid Drilled Shafts Using Continuum Theory
The nonlinear undrained response of rigid drilled shafts under static lateral and moment loading is evaluated within the context of elastic continuum theory. The approximate approach utilizes...

The Tip Displacement of Drilled Shafts in Sands
The design load of large diameter drilled shafts is determined so that the settlements do not exceed the values associated with the ultimate and serviceability limit states. Based on the...

Geotechnical Instrumentation for Repository Shafts
The United States Congress passed the Nuclear Waste Policy Act in 1980, which required that three distinctly different geologic media be investigated as potential candidate sites for the...

Ultrafine Cement Tests and Drilling Warm Springs Dam
Ultrafine cement was chosen by the Corps of Engineers for tertiary grouting the Warm Springs Dam because of its ultrafine particle size, low settlement, medium viscosity and longevity....

Modeling and Analysis of Shafts and Tunnels for the SSC
A brief overview of the Superconducting Super Collider Project (SSC) is presented followed by a discussion of the 3D modeling and finite element analysis of tunnels and shafts. The sequential...

Hybrid Lifted Structure for the Collserola Tower
The structure of the 300 m. Collserola Tower is a hybrid system formed by three combined structural systems consisting of: - a very slender cylindrical concrete shaft: - a large steel...

Shaft Vibration Monitoring on Vertical Units

Drilled Shaft Friction Evaluation via Pullout Tests
The history, development, and field test results of a small-scale 'pullout' test to assess the skin friction (fsu) for drilled shafts socketed in...

Bi-Directional Load Testing of Shafts to 6000 Tons
This paper describes the use of Osterberg cells (O-cells) to perform bi-directional load testing on full size production drilled shafts for a major bridge foundation near Owensboro, Kentucky....

Load Testing of Permanently Cased Drilled Shafts Founded in Hartford Shale
The axial and lateral load testing of three, 30 inch (76cm) diameter, permanently cased drilled shafts is analyzed herein. The prototype shafts were founded in (or on) Hartford Shale bedrock,...

Perimeter Load Transfer in Drilled Shafts in the Eagle Ford Formation
Results of six full-scale compression loading tests at four sites in the Dallas area are considered. Compressive strengths (qc) of the rock varied...

Side Resistance of Drilled Shafts in the Denver and Pierre Formations
Results of load tests on drilled shaft foundations in Upper Cretaceous shales are described and evaluated. Three load tests were conducted on shafts in the Denver Formation, in Denver,...

Drilled Shaft Side Resistance in Clay Soil to Rock
An evaluation is made of available field load test data for the axial side clay soils to hard rocks. Conventional total stress interpretations by the alpha method are used to examine the...
