Design of Drilled Shafts in Iowa - Validation and Design Recommendations TR-763

The overall goal of the proposed project is to provide final recommendations for the design and construction of drilled shafts in Iowa (in accordance with the LRFD framework) using additional load test data, while also ensuring that the associated settlements of drilled shafts are below the design limits. The DSHAFT database will be further expanded using additional field tests performed in Iowa for future analyses. The research plan was established by considering the existing data in DSHAFT, and the requirements needed to achieve the project goals.
