PILE FOUNDATION

 L T P C

3003

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
• The student will be exposed to the design of piles, pile groups and caissons with respect to vertical and lateral loads for various field conditions.

UNIT I

PILE CLASSIFICATIONS AND LOAD TRANSFER PRINCIPLE

9

Necessity of pile foundation – classification of piles – Factors governing choice of type of pile – Load transfer mechanism – piling equipments and methods – effect of pile installation on soil condition – pile raft system – basic interactive analysis - criteria for pile socketing.

UNIT II

AXIAL LOAD CAPACITY OF PILES AND PILE GROUPS

9

Allowable load of piles and pile groups – Static and dynamic methods – for cohesive and cohesionless soil – negative skin friction – group efficiency – pile driving formulae - limitation – Wave equation application – evaluation of axial load capacity from field test results - Settlement of piles and pile group.

UNIT III

LATERAL AND UPLIFT LOAD CAPACITIES OF PILES

9

Piles under Lateral loads – Broms method, elastic, p-y curve analyses – Batter piles – response to moment – piles under uplift loads – under reamed piles – Drilled shaft – Lateral and pull out capacity from load test.

UNIT IV

STRUCTURAL DESIGN OF PILE AND PILE GROUPS

9

Structural design of pile – structural capacity – pile and pile cap connection – pile cap design – shape, depth, assessment and amount of steel – truss and bending theory- Reinforcement details of pile and pile caps –– pile subjected to vibration.

UNIT V

CAISSONS

9

Necessity of caisson – type and shape - Stability of caissons – principles of analysis and design – tilting of caisson – construction - seismic influences.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

COURSE OUTCOMES: On completion of the course, the student is expected to be able to
CO1 Explain the importance of pile foundation and various functions and responsibilities of geotechnical engineer and contractor, in addition to the piling equipments.
CO2 Determine the vertical load carrying capacity of pile and pile group- keeping the settlement of pile as an important criteria based on field practices and codal provisions.
CO3 Apart from vertically loaded piles, the structures are exposed to the peculiar pile subjected to lateral and uplift load with reference to codal provision and case studies.
CO4 Understand the design of pile and pile caps, considering the wind and seismic loads.
CO5 Explain the importance of caisson foundation and checking the stability of caissons based on codal provisions.
