Paper Title:
Predicting the Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Single Piles Based on CPTU
  Abstract

Six methods to determine axial pile capacity directly based on piezocone penetration test (CPTU) data are presented and evaluated. Analyses and evaluation were conducted on three types piles that were failed during pile load testing. The CPT methods, as well as the CPTU methods, were used to estimate the load carrying capacities of the investigated piles (Qp ). Pile load test were used to determine the measured load carrying capacities (Qm). The pile capacities determined using the different methods were compared with the measured pile capacities obtained from the pile load tests. Two criteria were selected as bases of evaluation: the best fit line for Qp versus Qm and the arithmetic mean and standard deviation for the ratio Qp /Qm. Results of the analyses showed that the best methods for determining pile capacity are the CPTU methods.
