The construction of pile foundation requires a careful choice of piling system depending upon subsoil condition and load characteristics of the structure. The permissible limits of total and differentials settlement, unsupported length of the pile under scour and any other special requirements of the project are also equally important criteria for adoption. For piles in … Read more
Allowable Load— The load which may be applied to a pile after taking into account its ultimate load capacity, group effect, the allowable settlement, negative skin friction and other relevant loading conditions. Bored Cast In-situ Pile — A pile formed by boring a hole in the ground by a percussive or rotary method with the … Read more
In the case of bars in tension, a standard hook has an anchorage value equivalent to a straight length of 16 times dia. of the bar and a 90-degree bend has an anchorage value of 8 times dia. of the bar. The anchorage values of standard hooks and bends for different bar diameters are given … Read more
