Design Considerations: 1. The pile foundation that will be designed is for an assumed bridge structure. 3. Water level is being assumed to be at or just below ground surface. 4. Initial and draft calculations were performed and a preliminary number of piles and pile section was selected and the final design calculations will be presented here. 3.3.2.2 Foundation loads and load combinations Table 3.7 Summary of Loads Load Axial Moment ULS Moment Lateral Load Lateral Load Case Load about X - Dir. about Y - Dir. along Y - Dir. along X - Dir.

Summary of assumed project study; The project feasibility study conducted for the design and construction of this bridge structure recommends the following ; 1. Due to constrainst at the site and its location, only pile driving method of pile installation is deemed feasible. 2. The structural steel pile is being recommended, however since supply of the steel pile may not be adequate during the construction stage, a reinforced concrete pile is being considered as good alternative.

Calculation/Discussion 3.3.2.7 Estimate pile driving capacity Discussion: 1. The Canadian Foundation Engineering Manual recommends the use of wave equation analysis for all calculation of pile driving capacity. This analysis gives a more reliable results than the conventional dynamic equations. However, the use of wave equation analysis involves the use of commercially available computer software. In the absence of the wave equation software, a modified Gates dynamic formula will be used to estimate the pile driving capacity. 2. The research paper, Recent advances in the design of piles for axial loads, dragloads, downdrag, and settlement, B.H. Fellenius, 1998, it stated that " regardless of whether of not the settlement of the ground surface is of noticeable magnitude all piles will develop skin friction and dragloads" 3. A downdrag force will be included in the calculation. In the absence of a geotechnical engineer's recommendation, a value will be estimated as a percentage of the total pile shaft reaction.
