Summary and conclusions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


One of the major difficulties in predicting the axial capacity of pipe piles in sand has been a lack of understanding of the physical processes which control the behavior of piles during installation and loading. The objectives of this research are to develop the experimental facilities necessary to identify these processes and perform load tests to study the phenomenon of pile plugging. A summary of the work performed, conclusions, and recommendations for future research are presented in this chapter.
