Evaluation of Embedded Pile Resistance of Scour Critical Bridges

The main objective of this research study is to explore methods and techniques to accurately determine the capacity of in-place piles for in-service bridge structures, especially for those that are under severe scour conditions. Many existing scour critical bridges were built decades ago, and pile setup phenomenon is significant. Proposed methodologies will be based on effective Pile-CPT methods that have small variability in predicting pile capacity, considering scour as well as pile setup. These methodologies will be calibrated against field load test data (proof load tests of bridge structures plus single static pile load tests).
