TC18 Report July 2001 - METHODS OF ANALYSIS OF PILED RAFT FOUNDATIONS

Published by Nur Ashikin
Piled raft foundations provide an economical foundation option for circumstances where the performance of the raft alone does not satisfy the design requirements. Under these situations, the addition of a limited number of piles may improve the ultimate load capacity, the settlement and differential settlement performance, and the required thickness of the raft.
This report summarizes the philosophy of using piles as settlement reducers, and outlines the key requirements of design methods for rafts enhanced with piles. A number of available methods of analysis of piled raft behaviour are reviewed, and their capabilities and limitations are discussed. Some of the methods are useful only for preliminary design or for checking purposes, while others are capable of giving detailed performance predictions and can be used for detailed design. Conclusions are reached regarding the utility of some of the current methods used for design and the limitations of two-dimensional numerical analyses.
