Abstract:

Understanding the pile behavior and predicting the load carrying capacity of piles are important topics in foundation design. Experimental model tests have been conducted on single piles and pile groups embedded in silty sands and subjected to cyclic compressive loading. The experimental tests were conducted on smooth mild steel hollow piles with an outer diameter of 42 mm and 2mm wall thickness in a precast concrete cylindrical tank. The model piles have embedment depth-to-diameter ratios (L/d) of 8 and 16. Three configurations of hollow pile viz single piles and pile groups containing two piles and four piles embedded in silty sands were tested, and the results are presented and discussed in this paper. The experimental results of ultimate load carrying capacity have been compared with predicted values obtained by proposed theories.
