Modified Standard Penetration Test-based Drilled Shaft Design Method for Weak Rocks (Phase 2 Study)

The main objectives of this project are to improve the proposed design methods for axial capacity of drilled shafts embedded in weak rock, develop appropriate reliability- based resistance factors, and refine the modified standard penetration test (MSPT) method to eliminate or reduce the need for rock coring and laboratory triaxial compression testing for Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) drilled shaft design.
