Hello all;
I believe you will be interested in taking a look at the Pile Prediction event that I am in the process of organizing in connection with the forthcoming 3rd CFPB in Santa Cruz; Bolivia;( scheduled for April 27 - 29. The evnt comprises a series of static loading pile tests at the ISSMGE TC212 B.E.S.T. site. I have described the details of the site; tests; and prediction submission in the attached document. I hope that you will be interested in submitting a prediction and; also; that you will give me a hand with spreading the news by disseminating the invitation amongst those on your own contact list. (Some of the addresses I direct this message to may also be included on such lists. I apologize if you are bothered by receiving more than one copy of the message).
Four single piles of the same embedment length; 9.5 m; are included in the prediction event. The piles differ in width and type: a 620-mm bored pile; a 450-mm CFA-pile; a 450-mm FDP pile; and a 220-mm FDP pile. The latter has a an Expander Base (EBI) at the pile toe that is inflated to 300-mm diameter after the pile is constructed. The soil profile consists of a silty compact sand and has been explored using conventional boreholes (SPT) with lab tests; CPTU-soundings; Pressuremeter test; and Dilatometer tests. People who register intent to submit predictions on the pile-head load-movement curves and capacity for each test will receive a Prediction Package that will contain all necessary soil and pile information.
A loading test will also be carried out on a pile group consisting of thirteen 220-mm diameter FDP piles at 3 diameter c/c joined with a rigid pile cap. The prediction participants are asked to predict the response of the center pile and a corner pile.
The prediction effort is a part of a large field study involving soil in-situ exploration tests; head-down and bidirectional pile tests; and dynamic pile tests to demonstrate the state-of-the art and practice of analysis of the response and design of single piles and pile groups with regard to settlement and load distribution.
I will send the prediction package that includes site and soil information and submission template to all who register intent to submit a prediction at:
