Abstract

The Thesis explores the basis of relationships between the cone penetration test end resistance and the axial capacity of bored and continuous flight auger (CFA) piles. This aim was achieved using a variety of laboratory and field based studies in combination with database studies. The relationship between pile shaft friction and CPT end resistance was examined theoretically and then investigated in a laboratory pressure chamber and geotechnical centrifuge using clay-sand mixtures. A full scale instrumented bored pile test was also conducted to assist with the research effort. A new method for predicting shaft and base capacity was proposed based on the findings and a newly compiled database of static load tests.
