Evaluation of Static Resistance of Deep Foundation

The purpose of this research is to use field collected (static and dynamic) data to update the equations used for static resistance estimates in FB-DEEP, with focus on concrete (solid and cylinder) and steel (H and pipe - plugged or unplugged) piles, and develop recommendations for side friction (mobilized and ultimate) vs. displacment on cased drilled shafts in rock (weathered and competent). The objective is to reduce the possibility of claims during construction due to extra length requirements, splicing and time delays, and to quantify the unit side friction of steel casing considering strain compatibility between the cased portion and the socket length of a shaft.
