TAMWAVE 3: Basic Results of Pile Capacity Analysis

vulcanhammer.net

With the soil properties and lateral loads finalised, we can proceed to look at the program’s static results.  These are shown below.  We will concentrate on cohesionless soils in this post; a sample case with cohesive results will come later.

Pile Data
Pile Designation 12 In. Square
Pile Material Concrete
Penetration of Pile into the Soil, ft. 100
Basic “diameter” or size of the pile, ft. 1
Cross-sectional Area of the Pile, ft2 1.000
Pile Toe Area, ft2 1.000
Perimeter of the Pile, ft. 4.000
Soil Data
Type of Soil SW
Specific Gravity of Solids 2.65
Void Ratio 0.51
Dry Unit Weight, pcf 109.5
Saturated Unit Weight, pcf 130.5
Soil Internal Friction Angle phi, degrees 32
Cohesion c, psf
SPT N60, blows/foot 20
CPT qc, psf 211,600
Distance of Water Table from Soil Surface, ft. 50
Penetration of Pile into Water Table, ft. 50
