158A 855173 Cyclic axial pile response - alternative analyses Poulos, H G Proc Conference on Geotechnical Practice in Offshore Engineering

, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P403-421. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 In considering the influence of cyclic wave loading on the performance of piles, the degradation of the pile due to cyclic loading and the increase in pile resistance due to the rapid rate of load application must be taken into account. Two approaches, a single step method with a single iterative analysis and a cycle-bycycle method with a simulation of each cycle, are compared and the pile load capacities found to be in broad agreement with values observed in field and model tests. 855174 Design considerations for offshore piles Randolph, M F Proc Conference on Geotechnical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P422-439. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 An approach for estimating residual and peak skin friction for piles driven into clay is outlined. Tentative design curves presenting the parameters skin friction/undrained shear strength and skin friction/effective overburden pressure against undrained shear strength/effective overburden pressure (the strength ratio) are shown. Settlement of piles and the effects of pile compressibility leading to the degradation of shear transfer are considered. The theoretical analysis is supplemented by results from tests on model piles. 855175 Driven piles in a granular calcareous deposit Puyuelo, J G; Sastre, J; Soriano, D Proc Conference on Geotechnicai Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P440-456. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 Piles driven in coralline sands in the Philippines showed failure loads below those expected in a siliceous sand of similar density and granularity. Although the calcareous and siliceous sands have similar resistant behaviour on static testing and at low stress levels, performances during pile driving differ significantly. Calcareous particles fragment during pile driving and the cemented structures collapse, resulting in increased soil compressibility. Calcareous sands are quite porous and degraded particles are displaced into the porous skeleton, resulting in low lateral pressures on the pile. 855176 General effective stress method for piles in clay. Part I -theory Kirby, R C; Esrig, M I; Murphy, B S Proc Conference on Geotechuical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P457-498. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 Ultimate shear resistance along a pile shaft may be controlled by effective stress at failure and effective stress friction angle. This stress is dependent upon initial effective stress and changes due to pile installation, consolidation and pile loading. The 6-year Amoco Pile Research Program is summarised, which traces effective stress from initial conditions through pile loading to failure. The analytical models for each event during the processes are described and their limitations analysed. 855177 Procedures for analysis of laterally loaded pile groups in soft clay Bogard. D: Matlock, H Proc Conference on Geotechnical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P499-536. Pub/ New York: ASCE, 1983 Recommended design criteria produce non-linear curves of soil resistance, P, as a function of pile deflection, Y. Static and cyclic P-Y curves have been established for short term monotonic loading and for design conditions involving progressively increasing cyclic loading. A series of procedures has been developed for the formulation of similar non-linear curves for pile groups. Values of P and Y are modified to include effects of group interaction on pile group deflection and lateral soil resistance. 855178 Development of P-Y curves for layered soils Georgiadis, M Proc Conference on Geot¢cimical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983P536-545. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 Soil resistance-pile deflection (P-Y) curves have been developed for layered soils. An equivalent depth is calculated for each layer, depending upon actual depth, overburden pressure and strength properties of overlying layers. This approach has been incorporated into the COM624 computer program for predicting lateral pile response. Predicted results are in good agreement with those from field tests. If layering is not considered and soil properties assumed constant, an over- or underprediction of actual behaviour results, depending on whether the upper layer is softer or stiffer than the underlying strata respectively. 855179 Lateral pile analysis in weak carbonate rocks Abbs, A F Proc Conference on Geotechnical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P546-556. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 The effects of particle crushing and porosity of weak carbonate rocks on skin friction of driven piles were investigated using lateral loading. Load-displacement curves were developed using data from intact rock, but taking into account the breakdown of interparticle bonding at large strains. Once this breakdown has occurred, the pile effectively becomes cantilevered from the point where intact rock resistance still exists. Large scale pile load test data is required to validate proposed design methods. 855180 Site specific design of laterally loaded piles Kay, S; Kolk, H J; van Hooydonk, W R Proc Conference on Geoteclmical: Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P557-580. Publ New York: ASCE, 1983 A method using finite element analysis and in-situ site specific load-deformation data has been developed to predict lateral load response of single piles and pile groups. This method is expected to give a more accurate analysis than conventional use of load-displacement curves. 855181 Dynamic testing and analysis of Garoupa PGP-I piles Dahlberg, R; Matos, S Proc Conference on Geoteehnical Practice in Offshore Engineering, Austin, Texas, 27-29 April 1983 P581-595.
