Design Methods for Piles: Dealing with Uncertainty

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paper

Abstract

The design of piles in clay is an important engineering design task. This paper compares the effect two codes of practice and two calculation approaches have on the computed design capacity of a bored pile in London clay. It is shown that the choice of a design line to describe the soil strength profile is the major factor that affects the length of pile required.
