#TM-POSTGROUT Final Report: Workshop on Quality Assurance for Post-Grouted Drilled Shafts
FHWA, Caltrans, DFI, ADSC, Mary Ellen Bruce Large, P.E., D.GE, DFI Technical Activities Manager
PDF, 45 pgs., illustrated

In partnership with California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and with support from International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC), Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) organized a workshop on quality assurance (QA) practices for acceptance of post-grouted drilled shafts in conjunction with DFI’s 40th Annual Conference on Deep Foundations. The one and a half day workshop was held on October 15-16, 2015 at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, CA. Post-grouting, in the context of this workshop and report, refers to the alternative design and construction of base-grouted drilled shafts wherein a grout distribution system is installed during construction and used to grout the base under pressure after the drilled shaft concrete has gained adequate strength, resulting in a stiffer axial-compression load-displacement relationship and additional possible ground improvement effects. The primary goals of the workshop were to • Identify and summarize the state of the practice for design, construction, inspection, verification, acceptance criteria, reliability and performance of post-grouting. • Identify gaps and needs in quality assurance that should be addressed for successful use of post-grouting. This report is structured to follow the workshop program: workshop presentations outlined the state of practice and views from owners, engineers and contractors on acceptance of post grouting methods for drilled shafts; and subsequent workshop discussions attended by a small invited group of participants focused on identifying areas of agreement and disagreement on post-grouting best practices, acceptance criteria, design and verification procedures, and inspection requirements. A partial list of attendees of the open and closed sessions is provided as Appendix A, and copies of presentations are included as Appendix B. FHWA and Caltrans are the primary audiences for this report, and its content will be used to develop a roadmap for deploying the findings into policy and practice. The secondary audience is the broader industry group, and the report content will be disseminated in a variety of formats.

#CPF-2012-DRSH-1 Comparison of Bored Pile/Drilled Shaft Practices between Europe & North America
DFI Drilled Shafts Committee, Alan Macnab, P.Eng, D.GE
PDF, 41 pages (4 Journal Papers)

Four manuscripts describe a comprehensive comparison study between drilled shaft/bored pile practice in Europe and North America (i.e., US and Canada) focusing on the design, construction, contracting, quality control and implementation of recent technologies into the deep foundation industry. The material was presented at conference sessions of the 2014 DFI Annual Conference on Deep Foundations in Atlanta, Georgia, and the 2015 International Foundations Congress and Equipment Expo (IFCEE) in San Antonio, Texas. The presentations, lessons learned and discussions that followed are documented. For the purpose of this study the project team members (i.e. authors of the subsequent papers) were paired by geographic location, i.e., US team members collaborated with European team members to provide a detailed synopsis of the respective study topic. Conclusions drawn from the study were supported by data from a comprehensive project survey conducted on both continents. Brown, Wulleman and Bottiau present a comparison of design practice and recognize that while common trends in the design of deep foundations exist, local practice dictates much of the implementation. In addition thereto, differences in construction techniques (e.g., drilling fluids, reinforcement details, base cleaning) have an impact on the early design stages before construction starts. Marinucci and Jue follow up by investigating differences in construction methodology and note that in Europe, bored pile practice typically follows performance-based methodology and specifications, whereas, in North America, traditional prescriptive-based methodology and specifications are more widely used. In addition differences with respect to casing, usage of drilling fluid and safety requirements dictate the deep foundation construction. Coleman and Tipter explore the contracting methods, document forms, payment methods, contracting provisions, and regional influences in North America and Europe. Given the multitude of contract forms and the involvement of specialty contractors (and the legal responsibilities thereof) the concept of a “team approach” emerged among all comparisons, which would allow for more innovations, reduction of risk and a better methodology of risk sharing among all parties. Hertlein, Verbeek, Fassett and Arnold explore the current state of construction technologies and how some of those techniques are implemented in the quality management (QM) and quality assurance (QA) of drilled shafts. Recent technological developments including their integration in Europe and North America are discussed. In addition a review of QA approaches on both continents is provided along with code standards and guidance documents for each. Selected methodologies within the non-destructive and destructive range are explored and described in further detail.

#CPF-2013-HLPR-1 Industry Survey of State of Practice for Helical Piles and Tiebacks
DFI Helical Piles and Tiebacks Committee, Drs. S.P. Clemence (Syracuse University) and A.J. Lutenegger (University of Massachusetts Amherst)
PDF, 21 pages, illustrated

The last 25 years have seen exponential growth in the use of helical piles and tiebacks. Helical piles and tiebacks are now considered a standard of practice in the deep foundation industry. With the dramatic growth of this technology and the proliferation of available technical information, a synthesis paper on the current state of the practice was considered a valuable addition to the literature as a way to quantify and summarize the current state-of-practice. Based on the increased interest and global applications of helical foundations, in 2013 the Helical Piles and Tiebacks Committee (HPTC) commissioned a state-of-practice survey of current practices in the use, design and installation of helical piles and tiebacks. The major goals of the survey were to understand the current status of applications of helical piles and tiebacks, their design and construction, quantify perceived needs and to identify future trends. The results for the present survey are very encouraging and have clearly demonstrated that there is a cadre of engineers and manufacturers dedicated to continued improvement and understanding of helical foundation systems. Continued work and education of design engineers, architects, government agencies and owners will ensure continued success and progress.

#CPF-2013-SOIL-1 Evaluation of Elongation Criteria and Friction Loss in Ground Anchors
DFI Tiebacks and Soil Nailing Committee, John P. Turner and Benjamin J. Turner, Dan Brown and Associates
PDF, 26 pages, illustrated

This report describes a research project for evaluating the applicability of the widely accepted 80 percent criterion for elongation of ground anchors to anchors with unbonded lengths exceeding 100 feet. This issue is driven by several recent projects involving ground anchors for landslide stabilization in which a significant percentage of the anchors did not meet the criterion that requires measured elongation during proof load testing of at least 80 percent of the theoretical elastic elongation. The projects involved anchor unbonded lengths in the range of 85 to 220 feet, which is outside the range traditionally used in practice although anchors of this length are being used more frequently for landslide stabilization. The principal objective of this research is to address whether the widely accepted criterion of 80- percent elongation is applicable for such applications, and whether other factors affect the ability of anchors to meet the criterion.

#CPF-2012-LAND-1 Analysis of Landslides and Slopes Stabilized Using One Row of Piles
DFI Deep Foundations for Landslides and Slope Stabilization Committee, Hamed Ardalan and Dr. Mohamed Ashour, The University of Alabama in Huntsville
PDF, 128 pages, illustrated

The presented research work had a primary goal of developing a reliable and representative design method that accounts for the effect of the soil and pile properties and pile spacing on the performance of pile-stabilized slopes based on the soil-pile-interaction. The proposed design approach was also compiled into a computer program for the analysis of pile-stabilized slopes. The strain wedge (SW) model technique developed by Norris (1986), Ashour et al. (1998), and Ashour and Ardalan (2012-1) for laterally loaded piles (long, intermediate, and short piles) based on the soil-structure interaction was modified to analyze the behavior of piles used to improve slope stability. The computer software (PSSLOPE-M), which was written in Visual Basic and FORTRAN, was developed to implement the presented technique for pile-stabilized slopes, including the slope stability analysis (with no piles) using the Modified Bishop Method. The computer software is available from the researcher, Dr. Mohamed Ashour at ashouruah@gmail.com. Click Here to download copy of project report

#CPF-2013-SSMC-1 FINDAPILE.COM
DFI Seismic and Lateral Loads and Drilled Shaft Committees and ADSC Drilled Shaft Committee, Prof. Anne Lemnitzer (Prinicpal Investigator), University of California Irvine
Website

FindAPile.com was created with the purpose of developing a catalogue that documents studies of pile foundations under lateral loading to assist geotechnical engineers, researchers and contractors in their design selection, numerical modeling, literature reviews, research assignments and construction selections. Pile foundations, in particular drilled shafts, are one of the most common foundation systems used in engineering practice. Their versatility in application (off-shore, ports, bridges, buildings) and its resourcefulness in terms of engineering analysis and design (vertical and lateral loading capacities) make it a foundation preference in the United States. The direct use of large scale pile test results has become a design practice (performance based design) to create safer and more economical foundation systems. Large scale pile tests also provide a more realistic understanding of foundation behavior in specific boundary conditions, soil types and enable the engineer to conduct a much more advanced design approach. The mission of the research team is to create a resource for practicing engineers to help guide and advance the pile analyses through an extensive literature review and development of an online database of previous large scale pile experiments.

#TM-ACIP-3 Guideline for Interpretation of Nondestructive Integrity Testing of Augered Cast-in-Place and Drilled Displacement Piles
2011 Augered Cast-In-Place Pile Committee, Mike Moran, Chair and Editor; Tracy Brettmann, Principal Author; Bernard Hertlein, Matthew Meyer,Bria Whitmire, Co-Authors
39 pgs., illustrated. Available in PDF on Flashdrive or NOW AVAILABLE Printed Manual 6"x9" (Since March 2016)

This guideline provides practical guidance for the interpretation of nondestructive testing (NDT) of the integrity of augered cast-in-place (ACIP) and drilled displacement (DD) piles. Every NDT method has specific associated capabilities and limitations, and ACIP and DD piles have unique properties that must be considered when using a specific NDT method for a project. For successful interpretation, it is essential that the test results not be utilized alone, but in conjunction with all the available information on pile installation, as well as consideration of the subsurface conditions, past experiences and sound engineering judgment. This guideline supplements DFI’s two primary publications on ACIP piles: Augered Cast-in-Place Pile Manual (2016) and the Inspector’s Guide for Augered Cast-in-Place Piles (2010). This guideline was developed to provide 1) more detailed explanations of the various test methods available, 2) guidance on interpretation of the results, and 3) some typical examples of the data and interpretation.

#TM-SSMC-1 Seismic and Lateral Load Design and Testing Guidelines
DFI Seismic and Lateral Loads Committee (2011-2012), Chaired by Mark Petersen and Zia Zafir (2003-2009); Robert Kruger, Guideline Editor
Bookmarked PDF on Flash drive, 68 pgs., illustrated

This guidance document is intended to assist geotechnical engineers, pile designers, and contractors in analysis, design, and testing of piles and drilled shafts for lateral loads. Although analysis of lateral response of piles and shafts is routinely performed, there is no single guidance document and/or standard for design and testing. Several different analytical methods are available for the analysis and the resulting design can result in significantly different responses which can create confusion. Over the years, analysis of response of piles due to lateral loads evolved from closed-form solutions to py methods to strain wedge to finite element/finite difference modeling. This is especially true for analyzing and designing piles in potentially liquefiable soils with lateral spread issues under seismic conditions. This document discusses the background of different analytical and testing procedures and presents the recommended methods for analysis, design and testing of piles for lateral loads.

#TM-ACIP-2 Augered Cast-In-Place Piles Inspector's Guide, Second Edition, 2010
DFI Augered Cast-In-Place Pile Committee (2006-2010), Chris D. Shewmaker, Past Chair and Editor
PDF, 40 pgs., illustrated

This publication is a guide to the inspection of Augered Cast-In-Place Piles (ACIP) and a companion document to the DFI Augered Cast-In-Place Piles Manual. The manual, updated from the original version published in 1994, summarizes the requirements expected of all parties concerned in the successful installation of these piles and now includes information on Automated Monitoring Equipment (AME) and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). Step by step installation procedures, construction equipment and inspection tools are discussed along with the common potential problems. Sample inspection forms are also provided. The manual provides guidelines for observing and documenting the installation of ACIP piles constructed using a hollow stem continuous flight auger and may also serve as a guide for the training of inspection personnel. This document is not intended to cover all project related issues; however, the intent is to outline the expectations for personnel involved in ACIP Pile installation and monitoring. These expectations along with a thorough subsurface exploration program, a quality specification, an experienced contractor and knowledgeable inspector can lead to a successful ACIP Pile project.

#TM-SN-2 Soil Nailing Guide Specification, First Edition, 2010
DFI Tiebacks & Soil Nailing Committee (2006-2010), Jonathan K. Bennett, PE, D.GE, Past Chair and Editor
Soft cover, 40 pgs., illustrated, 6"x9" saddle-stitched

This guide, a result of the work of the Tiebacks and Soil Nailing Committee of the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) with review by the Anchored Earth Retention Committee of the ADSC: The International Association of Foundation Drilling and the Technical Activities Committee of DFI, is intended for general use primarily in the private market, since the public sector is typically served by the Federal Highway Administration design and construction guidelines. The model spec encompasses all designs, materials, products, accessories, installation techniques and testing procedures required for the installation of soil nail excavation support or earth retention systems. Its purpose is to assist in the development of project specifications for soil nail earth excavation support and earth retention systems and is based on generally accepted industry standards but may require modification by the specification writer to accommodate unusual or unforeseen site and subsurface conditions and the particular circumstances of the project. In this regard, the Committee hopes that the Guide will be of use where other design and construction guidelines do not exist or in the development of building code provisions for Soil Nailing in the various Building Codes nationwide.

#BCG-2005 The Bridge Beyond: A Narrative Biography
Vantage Press, Ben C. Gerwick Jr.
Hard cover, 314 pages, 9.1 x 6.1 x 1.2 inches

This book is a narrative autobiography, written in novel form, with fictitious names. All the events described are true but they have been arranged geographically instead of chronologically. While most of the events actually occurred with the writer being present, a few have been based on first-hand descriptions told to the writer a few days later. The philosophical discussions interspersed through the several chapters have been worded as a fictitious dialogue so as to enable the discussions in the form of questioning rather than dogmatic answers. Hopefully the reader will find answers relevant to his own live and own career.

#CPF-2012-SSTN-1 EFFC-DFI Carbon Calculator
DFI Sustainability Committee, European Federation of Foundation Contractors (EFFC) and Deep Foundations Institute (DFI)
Downloadable Excel Tool

The EFFC and DFI have created a tool that will calculate the CO2 emissions of foundation and geotechnical works. It is designed to allow contractors and commissioning organizations alike to assess the carbon footprint of their projects. The Foundation CO2 Calculator has been developed using verifiable, standardized data to enable accurate benchmarking of competing project proposals. Prior to its development there existed no single standardized tool for calculating CO2 emissions for these types of ground works. The tool also allows contractors to compare and contrast different technical approaches within the same project and see what the CO2 emissions will be. Furthermore it can be used throughout a project's development to compare how it performed against expectations. Click Here to Download the Tool
