INCLUSION OF OVERBURDEN FRICTIONAL RESISTANCE INTO SHAFT NOMINAL CAPACITY FOR SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC SAVINGS – AN O-CELL TEST CASE STUDY
Aditya Ayithi, Dean Herbst, William G. Ryan

For rock socketed drilled shafts, it is a common practice not to include the frictional resistance of overburden soils into the nominal capacity estimation. The primary reason often being cited is “overburden soils resistance is negligible compared to tha
