For drilled-in soldier beams in clay, a total stress analysis is used to evaluate the ultimate axial
capacity under undrained conditions. The unit skin friction is calculated as:

fs = α Su

(Equation 31)

where: α = 0.29 + 0.19 Su/po , and Su = undrained shear strength determined from consolidated
undrained triaxial tests.

The unit end bearing resistance is calculated as described below.

where D is the depth of embedment measured from the base of the excavation, B is the
diameter of the shaft, and Su is the undrained shear strength determined from unconsolidated
undrained (UU) triaxial tests, and Nc*

is a bearing capacity factor (table 15).
