Problem 1

Consider the single isolated bored pile constructed in a sandy soil as illustrated in

Figure 1. The concrete pile has a length, L = 15 m and circular cross-section with the

diameter, B = 800 mm, and the Young´s modulus for the concrete is E = 30 GPa. The

sandy soil gives a bearing capacity factor, Nq of 60, lateral pressure coefficient, Ks = 0.45,

pile-soil friction angle, δ = 28°, saturated unit weight γsat = 20 kN/m3 and Young´s

modulus, Es = 30 MPa.

b) Using Eurocode 7, determine the design resistance for the pile.

c) Given that the pile is subject to compressive vertical loading comprising a permanent

action, FG = 1500 kN and a variable action, FQ = 500 kN; verify the safety of the pile

with respect to the bearing capacity ULS.

d) Evaluate the settlement of the pile for the actions indicated in (c).

Problem 2

Consider the single isolated driven pile constructed in a clayey soil as illustrated in

Figure 2. The concrete pile has a length, L = 15 m and square cross-section of width, B =

350 mm. The clayey soil has an undrained shear strength, cu = 20 + 5z kPa (z is the depth

from surface), a bearing capacity factor, Nc of 9, adhesion factor, α = 0.80, and saturated

unit weight γsat = 20 kN/m3.

b) Using Eurocode 7, determine the design resistance for the pile.

c) Given that the pile is subject to compressive vertical loading comprising a permanent

action, FG = 380 kN and a variable action, FQ = 150 kN; verify the safety of the pile

with respect to the bearing capacity ULS.

Problem 3

Consider the hyperbolic functions in Table 1 & Figure 3 to represent the load-displacement response observed for a

set of four static compression load tests on 600 mm diameter continuous flight auger (CFA) type piles. Using these

results determine the pile design compression resistance using Eurocode 7.

Problem 4

Consider the single isolated bored pile constructed in a silty sand using bentonite mud to support the pile bore

during excavation. The concrete pile has a length, L = 12 m and circular cross-section with the diameter, B = 600 mm,

and the Young´s modulus for the concrete is E = 30 GPa. The silty sand has a saturated unit weight γsat = 20 kN/m3.

The soil profile has been characterized with a 16 m deep borehole with Standard

Penetration Tests (SPT) at 2 m centres (Table 2). In addition to the borehole, a single

Cone Penetration Test (CPT) was also completed and the following profile of CPT cone

resistance was obtained:

qc = 3.1 + 0.54z MPa, 0 < z < 10 m

qc = 16 MPa, z > 10 m

Based on these in situ test results, calculate the compression resistance of the pile.

c) Calculate the maximum moment, Mmax in the pile.

behaviour (for k = 20000 kPa). Comment of the value obtained.

horizontal displacement at the pile head.

b) Calculate the maximum bending moment and compare with the value obtained in Problem 5.

reaction modulus increases linearly with depth with, η = 5000 kPa/m. The pile is formed from

reinforced concrete with a Young´s modulus, E of 29 GPa, the pile head is free and subject to a

horizontal load, V0 of 100 kN,.

behind the wall.

Problem 2

Consider now, the situation represented in Figure 2. Soil A has the same properties

as in Problem 1. The fill (aterro) has a volumetric unit weight, γ = 16 kN/m3 and an

angle of shearing resistance, ϕ' = 25°. Determine the design actions in the struts;

assume the strut spacing is 5 m.

Problem 3

clayey soil with an undrained shearing resistance, cu of 160 kPa and volumetric

unit weight, γ = 20 kN/m3. The fill (aterro) has a volumetric unit weight, γ = 18

kN/m3 and an angle of shearing resistance, ϕ' = 30°. Determine the design actions

in the struts; assume the strut spacing is 5 m.

Problem 4

consider adequate and the design forces for dimensioning them.

a) Assume that Soil A & B are sandy with γA = 20 kN/m3 and ϕ'A = 35°, and γB = 17

kN/m3 and ϕ'B = 32°.

b) Soil B has the same properties as in (a) but Soil A is now a clay with cu = 35 kPa

and γA = 17 kN/m3.

Problem 1.2

For the construction of an embankment fill 5 km long, 15 m wide at the top and with side

slopes of 2H:1V (Figure 2), soil from a borrow pit close to the work site was used. A laboratory

compaction test was undertaken on this soil and the resulting compaction curve is presented

in Figure 3.

The specification for compaction required two criteria to be satisfied: Degree of field

compaction, GC ≥ 97% and field water content, (wopt – 2%) < w < (wopt).

The soil in the borrow pit has a natural water content of 5% and a humid unit weight of

17.2 kN/m3.

a) Determine the volume of soil that needs to be excavated from the borrow pit to construct

the embankment fill.

b) Determine the volume of water that needs to be added to the soil taken from the borrow

pit in order for the embankment fill to meet the specified compaction criteria.

c) At the beginning of the embankment construction, a trial fill was constructed using the

compaction equipment to be used in the works by the contractor. Various combinations of

layer thickness (0.25 m and 0.40 m) and numbers of passes (2, 4 and 8) of the compaction

plant were used and the results are indicted in Figure 4. Indicate which mode of operation

should be chosen to ensure that the compaction specification is satisfied.

Problem 1.3

Consider a compacted fill with a unit weight of 21.5 kN/m3 and a water content of 12%.

Assuming Gs = 2.70:

a) Calculate the dry unit weight, voids ratio and degree of saturation of the compacted soil.

b) Would it be possible to compact the same soil at a water content of 13.5% and achieve a

dry density of 20 kN/m3? Justify.

(Solution: a) γd = 19.2 kN/m3, e = 0.406, Sr = 80%)

Problem 1.4

A compaction test was undertaken in a mould with a volume equal to 1000 cm3 and the

following results were obtained (assume Gs = 2.67):

w (%) 12.8 14.5 15.6 16.8 19.2

b) Determine the optimum water content and the maximum dry density.

(Solution: γd = 18.3 kN/m3, wopt = 15%)

Problem 1.5

A layer of soil 0.30 m thick with a unit weight of 17.1 kN/m3, a water content of 15% and soil

particle unit weight of 26.5 kN/m3 was compacted using a cylindrical roller. After compaction,

the unit weight of the soil increased to 20.5 kN/m3 with no change in the water content.

a) Calculate the change in degree of saturation and the change in layer thickness due to

compaction.

(Solution: before - Sr = 51% & h = 0.30 m, after - Sr = 82% & h = 0.25 m)

Problem 1.6

To construct an embankment with a total volume of 175000 m3, 182000 m3 of fill was

obtained from a borrow pit. Laboratory compaction testing yielded values for γd,max =

16.2 kN/m3 and wopt = 12%. Assuming that the soil was compacted to the optimum state, the

natural water content of the borrow pit material is 6% and Gs = 2.63:

(Solution: γh = 16.5 kN/m3)

Problem 1.7

A laboratory compaction test has been undertaken for a motorway embankment construction

for which the results are presented in Figure 5. The embankment has a total volume of

30000 m3.

a) Draw the compaction and saturation curves (consider Gs = 2.70) and determine the

maximum dry density and optimum water content.

(Solution: γd,max = 18.8 kN/m3, wopt = 14.4%)

b) Knowing that the degree of field compaction of the fill is 97% and the borrow pit material

used for the fill has the following characteristics - γt = 17.2 kN/m3, wn = 12%, determine the

minimum volume of soil to be supplied from the borrow pit.

(Solution: Vexc ≥ 35624 m3)
