Keynotes: Axial Capacity Of Drilled Foundations In Soft Rocks And Intermediate Geomaterials - Presentation Notes
Organization: Deep Foundations Institute
Jan 1, 2001
This presentation addresses some of the problems encountered in estimating the capacity of drilled shafts and augered, cast-in-place piles in soft rock. Methods to quantify side and base resistance are suggested. However, the methods that are described should always be verified locally by performing load tests.
