Experimental Research on the Pile-Base Post-Grouting Effects of Piles of Liao River Bridge
Static load tests were carried out with Osterberg method on 3 bored piles formed in Liao River Bridge. Bearing capacity, base resistance and frictional resistance were obtained before and after base grouting. Based on the test results, the ultimate bearing capacities of piles were increased for 14.74%~43.87%, that of pile bases were increased for 89.57% ~ 163.49% and the frictional resistances were most increased for 31.20%. The pile bearing behavior was improved. Not only base resistances were improved after grouting, but also frictional resistances were improved by bettering the characteristics of soils and interfaces between piles and soils. After grouting, pile base resistance ratio of pile bearing capacity increased, and some frictional piles changed into end-bearing frictional piles. The frictional resistance of lower pile increased more than that of upper pile after grouting. The slurry penetration height of base grouting had a certain range, which was affected by quantity of mortar intrusion, grouting technology, grouting pressure and geological structure.
