Abstract

Dimensional analysis was applied to derive an analytical model of the axial bearing capacity of drilled piers. The solution based on the limit state of deformation, defines the ultimate load-settlement curve as a combination of a parabola and a straight line. The parabola is defined by the settlement at ultimate yield load. The settlement is computed using the cumulative modulus. Back-calculated values of cumulative moduli are given. The capacity reduction factor 0. 7, introduced in analysis of ultimate shaft resistance and of ultimate bearing capacity is suggested, being adequate to a confidence level 0. 95. Refs.
