It includes calculations of the resistance of piles to compressive loads, pile groups under compressive loading, piled foundations for resisting uplift and lateral loading and the structural design of piles and pile groups. Marine structures, durability of piled foundations, ground investigations, and pile testing are also covered - as are miscellaneous problems such as machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, geothermal piles and unexploded ordnance.
This edition has been fully up-dated to apply the latest version of Eurocode 7 and the UK National Annex, and refers to other structural Eurocodes for steel, concrete and timber relevant to pile design.
New British Standards covering pile construction and material testing are extensively cross-referenced to provide a comprehensive text compatible with the Eurocodes, and aspects of now withdrawn BSI codes are retained where useful to the designer. Changes to the procurement and management of civil engineering contracts applicable to piling projects are summarised.
It is well illustrated and includes numerous examples, re-worked to the codes, many based on actual problems. To Download Please Click https: SlideShare Explore Search You.

A literature review of international references also provided valuable supporting information regarding installation techniques and design approaches.

This was followed by a two-stage consultation with designers and installers of helical piles and culminated in an appraisal of the industry as it stands, highlighting where improvements could be made to better facilitate the adoption of helical piles. These are summarised in Figure 1. Rotational restraint of the pile by a group should prevent it occurring in service.
It should be noted that whilst Figure 1 shows failure mechanisms in compression, the same mechanisms also apply in tension. Tensile loading also risks pull-out of the top helix if its embedment depth is insufficient.
The questionnaire comprised technical questions to assess how capabilities and limitations varied across the industry. The responses to these questions were then analysed, with results discussed in Section 3. The design benchmarking exercise is discussed later in Section 5. Currently no specific design guidance or methodology has been formalised within the UK to address the distinctions of helical piling.
International standards vary in their treatment and consideration of helical piles without consistency. Simple reference to BGS geological maps and memoirs would alert the designer to the level of ground risk. Due to the relatively low overall cost for helical piles, the cost for an adequate ground investigation to limit geotechnical risk is often regarded as excessive.
This is generally a flawed view as the consequences of not understanding ground conditions can lead to large remedial or overrun costs and can present a risk to safety, for example motorway signage falling in heavy winds due to an inadequate founding stratum being used. The ground investigation recommendations of different companies for ground investigation data varied widely.
Some companies preferred only a single set of standard penetration tests SPTs at 2m intervals of depth whilst others preferred multiple boreholes or a single borehole at the actual foundation location , supplemented by trial pits and laboratory testing. It should be noted that procurement route often limits the opportunity for specialist helical pile designers to contribute at project conception and reduce ground risk appropriately. Typically where empirical methods were relied upon for design, less extensive ground investigation information was required.
All companies that were surveyed stated that they required testing to determine the aggressivity of the ground — an important consideration when using steel foundations in both natural and brownfield ground. There are some proprietary helical pile design methods, however, that prevail in the industry that rely solely on empiricism and substantial simplification of soil mechanics theory. Empirical methods can suffer from several limitations.
Their applicability is limited by the data they were originally based upon and they should be used only when the design situation is too poorly understood or design data is too limited to be addressed using conventional analytical methods.
In addition, with the increasing adoption of Eurocode standards over the past several years, partial factors must now be applied structural and soil properties as well as loads. Empirical methods not incorporating these factors may not be compliant with Eurocode 7.
These can be split broadly into two groups, those associated with granular soils sands and gravels and those associated with cohesive soils clays and silts. In cohesive and granular soils, greatest uncertainty comes from a plugged shaft failure mechanism, which depends on soil disturbance during installation and therefore occurs in partially remolded soils. As this mechanism is not found in other forms of piling, research into the governing parameters is less extensive and greater uncertainty in design exists.
Responses to the questionnaire suggested that some companies do not consider the plugged shaft failure mechanism and use fixed helix spacing to diameter ratios typically three to reduce its likelihood of occurring. As the pile is installed the helices cut through the soil, disturbing it and reducing its shear capacity.
The literature suggests Kh values in the range of 0. This has resulted in a lack of understanding of potential critical failure mechanisms, the dependence of design on actual conditions, and reduced levels of confidence in the design. As a result the design methods currently used are not based on a mature set of data on the behaviour of helical piles in different soils.
Load tests on working piles are more frequently carried out than preliminary pile tests. They are, however, only suitable for validating performance at working loads following design and construction, not a decision made prior to design and construction of the works, to allow ultimate capacity and factor of safety to be fully understood.
Despite helical piles often being used to resist cyclic loads, little evidence of testing specific to this was seen. They proposed a linear relationship between installation torque, T, and ultimate axial capacity, Pu.
Their variable Kt has been shown to vary based upon shaft shape and diameter and soil type and is typically between m-1, reducing as shaft diameter increases. This presents a large range generally unsuitable for adoption or reliance on by designers.
The disadvantage of a linear relationship when the geometry and soil-pile interaction of a helical pile is complex is that many contributing factors such as helix size, soil properties, groundwater depth and depth of installation are not considered individually and themselves are not linear.
