Improved Soil Characterization For Pipe Piles In Sand In Api Rp-2A Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this paper, specific modifications to the current API RP 2A guidelines are proposed on the basis of a data base analysis to account for the discrepancies arising from (a), (b), and (c) above. These modifications will reduce the discrepancies in the current API RP 2A method and increase the accuracy of the prediction of axial capacity of pipe pile in sand. Furthermore this will make the method fundamentally more consistent with soil behavior in deep foundations.
