Abstract

The subsurface conditions and full-scale field experiments conducted at the National Geotechnical Experimentation Site (NGES) at Northwestern University are summarized. The subsurface conditions consist of sand fill overlying a sequence of glacial clays and silts over dolomite bedrock. Field and laboratory geotechnical characterizations of the soil are summarized. The three full-scale test sections include an axial load test program on driven piles and drilled shafts, a permanent nondestructive evaluation test section for drilled shafts, and an axial load test program for multiple expanded tip micropiles.
