Pile settlement acceptance criteria / Fauziah Nawi

Nawi, Fauziah (2007) Pile settlement acceptance criteria / Fauziah Nawi. [Student Project] (Submitted)


Nowadays, piles become the most efficient method that acts as a foundation to prevent all
types of structures from failure. This failure is may be because of the weakness of soil
strength, geological and more. In Malaysia, the application of the pile is very broaden.
However, there is a limited of standard on pile settlement that can be used today in order
to provide a safety of the structure in future.
Towards the problem, this research studies the behavior of pile driven in soft ground and
its displacement behavior. In order to investigate the pile settlement criteria in clay, the
mechanisms of pile installation is simulated. Pulling test is used to check the pile shaft
capacity. No separation of pile capacity is required since the pulling test is only focused
on the pile shaft capacity. Total 12 number of model pile is tested which 8 of them
installed in container and others in field. Testing result shown that the range of
displacement which relevant to its failure is about 3.21% - 7.77% of pile diameter.
