A series of axial load tests have been conducted on an HP 14×73 pile, 18 in. diameter closed-ended pipe pile, a drilled pier installed using the slurry method and a drilled pier installed with temporary casing. These tests have been performed in conjunction with a pile prediction event associated with the 1989 Foundation Engineering Congress. This paper includes the information sent to potential predictors so that a priori predictions could be made. Data made available to the predictors include subsurface conditions at the test section, results of in situ and laboratory tests for the test section soils, test and anchor pile installation data, and load testing schedules.
