Development of Load and Resistance Factor Design Procedures for Driven Piles on Soft Rocks in Wyoming

The overall goal of the proposed research project is to develop locally calibrated load and resistance factor design (LRFD) procedures (i.e., design methodologies and resistance factors) for driven piles on soft rocks in Wyoming. Recognizing the design and construction challenges of piles driven on soft rocks, the research project is proposed to accomplish the following objectives: (1) to advance the knowledge of design and construction of piles driven on soft rocks; (2) to alleviate the aforementioned design and construction challenges; and (3) to advance the current state of practice pertaining to the design and construction of piles on soft rocks in Wyoming.
