Correlations from In Situ Compression, Pull-Out & Lateral Load Tests on Piles
Madhira R. Madhav, Prabir K. Basudhar

In an alluvial deposit consisting of layers of sandy silt with clay and kankar nodules, driven cast in situ piles are provided. The piles end on a stiff bearing stratum. To verify the available design capacities, compression, pull-out and lateral load tests are conducted in situ. The elastic continuum approach is used to estimate the equivalent modulus of deformation of the deposit. A comparison is made of the values from the three types of tests.
