The Research of Pile Load Test on Permafrost Regions


Article Preview

Through conducting load test on reinforced concrete piles of the bridge in Kunlun Pass Basin, the research is mainly about pile foundation bearing capacity on permafrost regions. The paper expounds the fundamental of pile vertical load test and the loading method. Through analyzing the test data, what can be concluded is that it can be close to actual working condition of piles when pile load test is conducted on permafrost regions. Meanwhile, reference data is provided for future bridge projects in the application of pile on permafrost regions.
