Paper Title:
Interpreting Ultimate Capacity of Driven Piles with S-lgt Curve and Davisson Offset Limit
  Abstract

This paper explores the methods used widely in China and western world interpreting the ultimate capacity of driven piles based on axial static load tests. A database consisting of 57 prestressed high- compression-capacity concrete pipe piles, which are widely used in soft soil ground conditions for building and transportation projects in China, is built. Two methods widely used in China and western world to interpret the ultimate capacity of driven piles based on axial static load testing data, S-lg(t) curve and Davisson Offset Limit, are applied to the database. Findings indicate that both methods work well and reach almost the same estimation. Conclusions suggest that both academia and industry of China and western world should take the advantages of the methods and apply them to engineering practice.
