Discussion of an instrumented screw pile load test and connected pile group load settlement behavior


The aim of the paper is to discuss a fully instrumented screw pile load test up to failure, in difficult heterogeneous soil conditions along the shaft. The pre-stressing of the pile during its installation process has been brought to attention as an important item to assisting in explaining the differences in pile capacity and load settlement curve on the one hand, and the data as registered from the pile shaft instrumentation. In the second part of the paper, starting info on the registered load settlement data of the foundation slabs of each of the three, closely positioned, oil tanks of 48 m diameter and 19 m of height are shared and briefly analyzed.
