Modelling The Behaviour Of Pile Groups With Favourable Group Efficiencies
Organization: Deep Foundations Institute
Jan 1, 2011
A redevelopment in the City of London has been constructed with a piled foundation system that is believed to be the first of its kind. The purpose of the research is to explore this novel foundation method, which involves the installation of closely spaced piles in a perimeter arrangement with a body of soil enclosed in the centre. Both centrifuge modelling and numerical modelling techniques are used.
