### HOW TO CALCULATE PILE LOAD CAPACITY STATIC ANALYSIS

Lateral Load Capacity of Piles M T DAVISSON Department of Civil Engineering University of Illinois Urbana Pile foundations usually find resistance to lateral loads from a passive soil resistance on the face of the cap b shear on the base of the cap and c passive soil resistance against the pile shafts The latter source is usually the only reliable one Analysis of the Timber pile is a trunk of a tree trimmed of branches A timber pile is usually designed for a maximum load of 15 to 25 tons pile Additional strength can be obtained by bolting fish plates to its side These piles last for about 30 years The breadth of these piles ranges from 12 to 16 inches Applied load includes weight of pile Pile Capacity Bearing Capacity Factors Overburden stress Base Bearing Capacity Shaft skin friction Results Vertical Load Base Resistance Shaft Resistance Total ultimate resistance Allowable Load Overall factor of safety Calculation Reference Pile design Geotecnics Pile Design and Construction Practice Calculation Preview not consider buckling capacity of timber piles The tip of the pile represents the smallest pressures timber piles today are designed primarily on the basis of their end bearing load carrying capacity The earliest standardization effort involving timber piles was the establishment of uniform size and grade characteristics in ASTM D25 Standard Specification for Round Timber Piles 22 First developed in 1915 the

The highest ever recorded design load for timber piles in U S highway construction is a 1000 foot long viaduct supported by timber piles which have a 75 ton design load on Interstate 80 near Winnemucca Nevada 1 3 SEISMIC DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS The ultimate load capacity of the pile is given by – Q u fp A p fs A s 20 6 Piles in Sands For pure sands – ADVERTISEMENTS Q u σ N q fs A s 20 7 Thus the point bearing resistance of piles in granular soils increases proportionately with the increase in the length of the pile Timber Piles Transmission of load through timber piles takes place by the frictional resistance of the ground and the pile surface Timber piles prove economical hit supporting light structures to be located in compressive soils constantly saturated with water The timber piles are made from timber obtained from trees like sal teak deodar babul Khair etc It has been found that Timber Pile Overview TYPICAL LENGHTS 15 to 75 feet – Southern Pile 15 to 120 feet – Douglas Fir MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS ASTM D 25 AWPA UC4A 4B 4C 5B and 5C ASD Typical Design Stress 0 8 to 1 2 ksi based on pile toe area Design Load 20 to 100 kips 10 to 50 tons Driving Stress 3 x Design Stress 3 ksi 28 01 2005 nbsp 0183 32 The contractor jetted 40 foot timber piles and then got nervous and called for an exploration which was completed last week and wants an estimate of pile capacity for piles already placed I can t find anything on the capacity of a jetted pile Any way to proceed would be helpful in determining the capacity of piles which have already been placed The only thing I
