LOADING AND CAPACITY CHARACTERISTICS OF PILE FOUNDATIONS

American Petroleum Institute (API) has developed such guidelines for evaluation of the capacity of the pile foundations (API RP2A, 20th edition 1993). These guidelines address a wide scope of topics such as operating and environmental loading; determination of static capacity; influences on capacity, stiffness; applications of discrete element and continuum analytical models; use of in situ ...

Evaluation of Group Factor Method for Analysis of Pile Groups

The nonlinear springs are defined using API p–y curves at regular depth . intervals, where p represents the lateral soil resistance per unit length of the pile and y is the lateral deflection of the pile (API, 2007). As it was discussed before response of a single pile is different from response of a pile in a pile group due to group effect. One of the most common methods of accounting for ...

16-15 LATERALLY LOADED PILES

Your sheet-pile program FADSPABW (B-9) is a special case of this method. It was separately written, although several subroutines are the same, because there are special features involved in sheet-pile design. These additional considerations would in-troduce unnecessary complexity into a program for lateral piles so that it would be a little more difficult to use. Many consider it difficult in ...

Pile Fatigue Assessment During Driving

The SRD is the ultimate axial pile capacity that is experienced during the dynamic conditions of pile driving. Predictions of the SRD are usually calculated by modifying the calculation for the ultimate static axial pile capacity in compression. API RP 2A and ISO 19002 refer to several methods proposed in the literature.

Axial Load Capacities of Steel Pipe Piles in Sand

American Petroleum Institute (API, 1986) are widely used for estimating pile capacities. Previous studies (Olson and Dennis, 1982; Dennis and Olson, 1983a, 1983b; Olson, 1984; Olson, Dennis, and Winter, 1984) have provided estimates of the accuracies of earlier API methods in both cohesive and cohesionless soils. This paper contains a study of the probable accuracy of the recently revised API ...
