D. Tip Resistance in Cohesive Soil: AASHTO 5.6.5.1.3 / NSCP VOL. II 4.6.5.1.3 Qt = qt At

where: qt = Nc Sut ; limit = 3800 kPa

* If Bt > 1.90m and shaft settlements will not be evaluated, the value of qt should be reduced to qtr as follows; qtr = = Fr qt 2.5 a Bt 3.66 + 2.5b qt

F. Provision on Computation Bored Pile Capacity: * For Bored Piles with permanent steel casing, Side/Slide Resistance will be neglected on levels with casing. * Calculate scour levels and neglect side/slide resistance
